    Steelworkers standing in solidarity with Teamsters Local 618 members on strike at Valvoline
    St. Louis – Steelworkers have joined Teamsters Local 618 members at the Valvoline plant at Highway 55 and Potomac to show solidarity with them in their strike against the company for an unjust change to their health insurance that would require out-of-pocket deductibles as high as $7,000.
    Members of the Granite City Chapter of the Steelworkers Organization of Active Retirees (SOAR) have been assisting Local 618 members since they went on strike March 1.
    “We are walking to show solidarity with those members who are fighting for a better healthcare option,” said SOAR Vice President Dennis Barker. “We’ll continue to stand with them for as long as it takes and bring food, snacks and water.”

    Teamster retirees are standing in solidarity with Teamsters Local 618 members on the Valvoline strike line today in St. Louis. These workers have been on strike since March 1 over an unjust healthcare change by the company that would require out-of-pocket deductibles as high as $7,000.
    Here's how YOU can help. Call Valvoline and tell them this is why you are NOT using their products.

    Strike settled after 8 long weeks.

    Strike ends! Teamsters Local 618 members agree to new contract with Valvoline
    After an eight-week strike, Teamsters Local 618 members are back on the job at the Valvoline plant at Highway 55 and Potomac.
    The 22 workers, employed as drivers, material handlers, packers, warehouse leads and blenders, went on strike March 1 over a new three-year contract requiring out-of-pocket healthcare deductibles as high as $7,000 and a threat to take away their pensions.
    Local 618 Principal Officer Derek Kropp said members ratified a new agreement Friday, April 23 and went back to work on Monday, April 26. Kropp was quick to thank Labor, elected officials and the general public for their support.
