Posted On: Dec 02, 2016
HAZLETON – (12/02/2016) Cargill members in Hazleton ratified a new deal with wage increases, greater investment in personal protective equipment, and language to prevent discrimination based on nationality, sexual orientation etc. The membership at this meat processing facility is quite diverse, and UFCW Local 1776 was proud to provide interpreters throughout negotiations.
The Local 1776 members at Cargill proudly produce beef products for sale at supermarkets. These members work extremely hard and are truly great at what they do. Congratulations to the negotiations committee (pictured here) on the successful negotiations. This new is a big step forward in terms of compensation, safety, and job security.
"Cargill is one of the largest employers in the Hazleton area, proudly employing approximately 600 people. We produce ground beef, whole muscle beef (steaks, roasts, etc.) and pork products that are sold at grocery stores across the U.S."
