On January 8th, 2021, employees at Penn Aluminum in Murphysboro, IL voted in a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) election to KEEP the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 702 as their collective bargaining representative. To that end, the Local is working to restore and improve the terms and conditions prior to the Company's November 6th, 2020 action in withdrawing recognition "effective immediately" (even though the existing contract remained in effect through December 14th, 2020).
On Friday, January 22nd, the Union issued a Demand to Bargain and Information Request letter to Penn Aluminum personnel. Please click here to view a copy of such letter, and continue to come back to this page for updates along the way!!!
