Park Rapids Members at RDO and Liquor Store Ratify New Agreements

Local 1189 Union members in Park Rapids voted on their contracts in early January.  The membership voted unanimously to accept the Tentative Agreement at Park Rapids Liquor Store.  The contract improves union representation at the store, wage increases and improvements in the cost of the employee portion of the health insurance. The membership at RDO (potato processing plant) voted to accept the Tentative Agreement.  Negotiations were difficult but the committee worked tirelessly and stayed strong to get a contract that has seen improvements in time off, wages and workplace safety.  This is a good contract that provides building blocks for improvements for years to come.

Congratulations to the negotiating committees and the members on your new contracts!
