    Default Hoffa, Hall Take a Stand for Striking Ohio Workers (Libbey)

    Give me a break! Are we supposed to be impressed?

    Solidarity is an important feature of the union movement. And yesterday, Teamster leadership engaged in it firsthand.

    Teamsters General President Jim Hoffa and General Secretary-Treasurer Ken Hall joined striking Libbey Glass workers in Toledo, Ohio on the picket line. Libbey Glass workers are represented by United Steel Workers Local 700, International Association of Machinists Local 105 and Glass Molders Plastics Local 59.

    The workers, who are fighting for a new contract with Libbey Glass, are in the middle of negotiations for a new three-year contract with the company. The last contract expired on Oct. 1 when the two sides were unable to hammer out an agreement. The workers are seeking fair working conditions, adjustments to overtime rules and preventing downsizing at the company.

    “I am proud to stand with my brothers and sisters in their fight for a fair contract with Libbey Glass,” Hoffa said. “We must raise standards across the board for all workers in all industries to preserve the middle class.”

    Libbey issues statement to unions: Offer is final
    A strike that has hampered Libbey Inc.’s Toledo factory enters Day 4 today, but negotiations between the Toledo table glass maker’s four unions were taking place on Friday, officials said.

    Libbey on Friday night issued a statement saying it is committed to reaching a fair contract. It disclosed it has made a final offer to the unions. It said it would provide for “competitive wage increases totaling 4.5 percent over three years.” As a result, the company said, the wages would “continue to be at or above market when compared to median manufacturing rates in the Toledo area.”

    The company also said employee contributions to a health-care savings plan would be reduced by 50 percent for the first two years and contributions to Libbey's HMO would not increase for two years. Libbey said it also offered work rule changes to reduce absenteeism, which is 6.7 percent, or what it said was double the industry average, and offered greater flexibility in scheduling overtime.

    It said its proposal does not call “for any union job reductions.”

    Translation: we are going to pay wages just a low as the non union jobs

    3 unions await Libbey strike outcome
    Libbey Inc. effectively gave the striking members of Glass Molders Plastics Local 59 an extra 48 hours to approve a new deal on Monday after the union twice rejected contract offers over the weekend.

    But while the union, on strike nearly two weeks now, represents a relatively small share of Libbey’s Toledo-area employees, a continued impasse beyond that could sink agreements the company recently reached with its three other unions — or set the stage for those locals to consider crossing the picket line to get back to work.

    Libbey’s North Toledo factory went dark Oct. 12 after three of the plant’s four unions rejected tentative labor agreements. Both Local 59 and the International Association of Machinists Lodge 105 went on strike. The United Steelworkers Locals 700T and 65T did not strike but have honored the picket line and members haven’t been in the plant since the walkout.

    Last Union Settles, Ending Toledo Glass Strike

    Libbey Inc. expects to resume normal operations at its North Toledo glass plant today after the company was able to secure a contract agreement with the lone union that was still on strike.

    Shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday, Libbey and Glass Molders Plastics Local 59 announced that the two sides had been able to come to an agreement that would end the 14-day strike.
    According to the company, members of all four unions received the same economic and general terms in their contracts. The workers will receive wage increases totaling 5 percent over life of the deal, competitive health and retirement benefits, and compromises around attendance and overtime policies.

    Toledo Glass Workers Vote to Accept New Contract, Strike Ends

    TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 26, 2016 — Nearly 115 International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) members at Libbey Glass in Toledo, OH, who went on strike after overwhelmingly rejecting a so-called “last, best and final offer” (LBFO) from the company, have voted to accept a new contract that holds the line on many membership concerns.

    The IAM Local 105 (District 54) members were joined on the picket lines by Glass Molders and Pottery Workers Local 59 at midnight, October 12, when their contract extension expired. IAM members however didn’t return to the plant, instead honoring the picket line of the GMP, who rejected the revised offer from Libbey Glass.

    Sticking points in the dispute were working conditions, wage increases, mandatory overtime and a draconian attendance policy. IAM Negotiators remained at the bargaining table to negotiate with management at Libbey Glass, and brought the most recent offer that improved, or removed the company proposals from the agreement to a ratification vote. Just as important, with an aging workforce, company paid health care benefits will be reinstated retroactively to the date the work stoppage began.
