    Default D.W. Dickey workers issue strike notice

    On Wednesday, the union issued a strike notice to the company, union representative Doyle Baird confirmed.

    D.W. Dickey is a concrete ready mix company with locations in East Liverpool, Lisbon, and Columbiana.

    Baird said the company has made two offers to the bargaining unit during the negotiations, with the offer remaining the same each time — a one-year contract extension and a $2,000 singing bonus, but no increase in wages.

    The company also said it would maintain the same insurance (there were no increases, according to Baird), and also increase the pension during that one year.

    The union rejected the offer both times.

    “We gave the company the strike notice today,” he added.

    The 23 drivers in the union were to go on strike at midnight Wednesday, picketing at all three D.W. Dickey facilities in the county.

    Teamsters Local 92 Ready-Mix Drivers on Strike at D.W. Dickey & Son

    (LISBON, Ohio) –– Following the rejection of D.W. Dickey and Son’s most recent offer on July 25, Teamsters Local 92 members have gone on strike at the company’s Columbiana, Lisbon, East Liverpool and Steubenville, Ohio locations. The workers deliver ready-mix concrete for the company.

    “These drivers work hard, putting in 60 hours a week, and what was offered was a slap in the face,” said Local 92 President Doyle B. Baird. “The economy is doing great, construction is everywhere, and these workers deserve a pay scale that’s commensurate with the skill level of their trade.”

    At issue with the workers is that the company is proposing a flat $2,000 signing bonus for ratifying the one-year extension agreement rather than agreeing to a one-dollar raise in their hourly rate. The demand for concrete is seasonal, so it’s especially important that the drivers get an hourly pay raise during the busy season to carry them through the winter, when construction demand drops off significantly.
