Swiss Water Members Reject Settlement

UFCW Local 247 members employed at Swiss Water  rejected the settlement presented to them at a vote held July 30th. The Company had offered a fifteen month roll-over of the agreement with a 2% increase. Swiss Water is currently re-structuring it's operation and did not wish to overhaul the agreement without knowing some of the changes. Members expressed concern over the elimination of positions and cross classification work. A strike vote was taken immediately after the rejection and members were in favor of strike action by a vote of 13-3.
