After failing to ratify a new contract between IAM Local 830 Workers and BAE Systems Louisville by an overwhelming rejection on Sunday morning, August 21, 2016, Union Workers went on strike.|
After two more attempts to negotiate a fair contract and the requirement of a Federal Arbitrator's intervention with the company, an acceptable agreement was finally reached.
A vote to ratify the new contract was taken on Friday, September 2, 1016. At 11:03am it was announced by IAM & AW Business Representative Billy Stivers that, by a "close" vote, the contract was accepted.
Mr. Stivers stated he was proud of the Union Members and thanked the Union Negotiating Committee - Danny Lively (Blaster, Chief Steward), Henry Green (Aseembly, Steward), Jim Overberg (Welder) and Jason Birkla (Maintenance, Steward) - for their work.
Jim Lively, on behalf of the Union Negotiating Committee, thanked Billy Stivers for his knowledge during negotiations. He also encouraged everyone to attend the next Union Meeting on Monday, September 12.
BAE Systems Union Workers will return to work on Tuesday, September 6. Weekend workers will return to work the following Friday.
