Kaiser Aluminum Corp. recently announced that union members at the company's Newark, Ohio, and Spokane, Washington, facilities have ratified a new five-year labor agreement.
The new agreement, which affects approximately 900 union members, extends through Sept. 30, 2020. The agreement also extends the term of the director designation agreement that allows the union to nominate candidates to the company's board of directors.
"We are pleased to reach this agreement to extend through 2020 our productive, long-term relationship between Kaiser Aluminum and the United Steelworkers," said Jack A. Hockema, Kaiser Aluminum president, chief executive officer and chairman. "The contributions of our Trentwood and Newark workforces have been a critical part of our company's success as a leading manufacturer of semi-fabricated specialty aluminum products. We greatly value continued collaboration among our employees to enhance our competitive position as a leading producer of sophisticated products with demanding requirements. This agreement underscores our objectives to be the preferred employer in our communities, the preferred supplier for our customers, and preferred investment for our shareholders."
