Teamsters OK Labor Pact at Alro Steel in Michigan

Teamsters Local 332 members at Alro Steel’s facility in Flint, Mich., have approved their most recent collective bargaining agreement.

The union said the four-year agreement includes significant improvements, including a 10% average wage increase in the first year of the contract, improved protections for mandatory overtime, and the maintenance of health care benefits. Additionally, the workers received ratification and attendance bonuses.

“By securing the improvements included in this contract, we are ensuring a better future for our members and their families,” Dan Glass, Local 332 president, said in a press release on Monday.

“As the ‘right to work’ repeal and industry-leading contracts negotiated by the Teamsters demonstrate, organized labor is still the muscle, heart, and soul of Michigan’s workforce,” he added.

The Teamsters at this Alro location are responsible for processing and distributing industrial-grade steel, according to the release.

Alro Steel, headquartered in Jackson, Mich., operates more than 75 locations in 15 states. The company could not be immediately reached for confirmation.
