Pittsburgh Glass workers take pay cuts

Post Time:Mar 12,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:175

Employees of Pittsburgh Glass Works accepted wage cuts Wednesday night.

The cuts were included in a contract ratified by Local 3059 of the United Auto Workers, which represents about 305 workers at the company's Evansville plant.

Terry Hall, president of the local union chapter, declined to say how many members voted in favor of the contract.

"We know the times we are in," Hall said. "We know this is something that many other people have taken."

A representative of Pittsburgh Glass Works declined to comment.

Along with the wage cuts, the workers agreed to receive less pay when on disability leave. Also, newly hired workers will be paid at a lower wage scale. The contract will last for four years, according to a March 11 Evansville Courier & Press report.
