On Tuesday, May 21st, UFCW Local 152 members at Maryland Plastics in Federalsburg, Maryland overwhelmingly voted to ratify a new three-year contract.
With the newly ratified contract, Maryland Plastics members will now receive many additional perks to their existing contract. This includes a yearly across-the-board wage increase for the life of the contract, preserved affordable healthcare, and other items. Most notably, members can now enjoy their birthday as a paid personal holiday, and members with less than three years of seniority gained a week of vacation, and members with more than three years of seniority received an additional PTO day.
Congratulations to our members and the Negotiating Committee, which included Director of Collective Bargaining Larry Lucente and Recorder/Union Representative Lisa Sanders. Congratulations on a job well done!
