Champion Window Workers Vote “No Union”

July 22nd, 2010 by Editor

Production workers at the Champion Window manufacturing plant in Sharonville, Ohio, have voted against having the Iron Workers Shopmen’s Local 468 represent them as a bargaining agent in future negotiations with Champion. The Cleveland-based union petitioned for an election in May to represent full and part-time window manufacturing production, maintenance and shipping workers. (For more on this story, CLICK HERE.)

“We are very pleased that Champion team members in the Sharonville window plant have chosen to continue to work with us directly to address employment-related issues and concerns,” said Dennis Manes, Champion CEO. “This experience has taught us a lot, and allows us to renew our commitment to work together in meeting the challenges of making Champion the kind of company we all want it to be—today and well into the future.”

The Sharonville window plant consists of 155 workers. Champion employs 1,700 workers in four manufacturing plants and 77 home improvement showrooms across the country. Currently, no Champion employees are unionized.
