United Steelworkers approve contract with Illinois Cement Company

Posted by wlpo on May 8, 2012

A contract keeping employees of Illinois Cement Company in La Salle on the job has officially received union approval.

United Steelworkers Union Vice President Boo Herndon says a three-year contract was ratified Monday night by a close margin.  The agreement was reached last Thursday night after a day long negotiating session.  Union members had voted to strike if an agreement couldn’t be reached.

The new contract is good through February 13, 2015.
