Victory for Joint Board Members in Plastics Manufacturing

2015.05.06.Fashion Press Conference.450

After six weeks of  negotiations with the Plastic, Metal, and Manufacturing Association in New York and New Jersey, members of the NY NJ Regional Joint Board secured a strong three year agreement, including higher wages and affordable benefits. The new CBA was ratified at the end of June by over 750 members, including those from Gary Plastics, Viele Manufacturing, and Lombardi’s.  This victory would not have possible without the collaboration and leadership of the Local 132 Negotiations Committee: Maria Zelaya from Lombardi’s, Sonia Jesus Carranza and Hilda Savaria from Gary Plastics-Viele Manufacturing, as well as Milagros Penalo, Victor Lino, Maria Cabrera, Agnes Ortiz, and Bernardino Chaviano.
