Union Members Reach New Contract With Hubbell Power Systems In Centralia

Employees for Hubbell Power Systems in Centralia will go back to work this (Monday) morning with increased wages.

429 members of the local IUE-CWA took a vote on Saturday morning, and the union agreed to ratify a new contract with Hubbell.

According to union leaders the new agreement will provide a better retirement package, vacation eligibility for new employees and more competitive wages.

The new 4 year deal will include the largest wage increase at the Centralia plant in 40-plus years.

The new contract comes just days after workers picketed outside the plant warning of a strike if negotiations fell through.
