    Hercules strike ends, union back to work - Morning Call

    About 80 workers at Hercules Cement's Stockertown plant ended their strike and were back on the job Monday after ratifying a new four-year contract this weekend.

    The union, Teamsters Local 77, went on strike June 14 over management's effort to include new work rules in their contract that would give the company the unlimited ability to reassign employees to cover for workers who are out because of injury or other reason.

    Plant manager Richard Zimmel said management clarified the job-transfer language to state that workers transferred to special assignments or to cover for sick or vacationing workers would be returned to their original duties when the absent employee returns.

    Union steward Tim Groller said that change was important to union members, who did not like the prospect of being permanently reassigned against their will. Union members ratified the new contract 47-33.

    "It wasn't a major change, but a slight change that gave people a little more stability," Groller said.
