More than 600 cement truck drivers, dispatches and yard workers in the San Francisco bay area have voted to extend their current contract for three more years. An overwhelming 99 percent of the workers voted in favor of the extension. The overall economic settlement includes a $6 per hour wage increase over three years.

"The three-year extension we just ratified continues the history of having the best Ready Mix contract in the country," said Terry Post, a member of Local 853 in San Leandro, Calif., and a mixer driver for the past 32 years. "The excellent contract means less turnover of employees which, in turn, means more experienced employees and union members who know the true value of solidarity and strength."
