RWDSU news from across North America
Facing a potential trial for violating workers' rights, the owner of Laminated, a paper products factory in Linden, New Jersey, has finally negotiated a fair contract with his workers, who joined Local 262 over a year ago.
After more than a year of battle, the workers at Laminated Inc. are finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
Mendel Schwimmer, owner of the paper and cardboard plant located in Linden, signed a contract last week after months of impeding and attempting to stymie negotiations with the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union.
Schwimmer, who has had myriad unfair labor practices complaints filed against him by the RWDSU and has been pressured for months by the union representatives regarding alleged unfair labor practices and unsafe and unsanitary working conditions at the plant, finally threw in the towel right before he was to go before a judge.
