Upstate Business Agents and Stewards just finished negotiating Crown Cork & Seal USA’s Contract. Members of Teamsters Local 509 employed with Crown Cork and Seal overwhelmingly ratified a new three-year agreement. The new CBA provides for significant wage increases, increased benefit contributions, the elimination of a two-tier wage system, and protection of Seniority rights for members. In addition, the new agreement also cleans up and improves previous contract language.
“On behalf of the President James Todd, Vice President Brian Clardy and myself, we would like to thank the Stewards for their help in these negotiations with the CBA, and getting a strong contract for our members” stated Local 509 Business Agent Charley Brooks.
