Workers at Prince Minerals near the Port of Wilmington, Delaware voted today to join Local 326. There are 21 workers in the bargaining unit.
“The guys worked really hard to form their union over the past four months and we look forward to negotiating a strong first contract for them,” said Joe Smith, President of Local 326 in New Castle, Del.
“The workers are seeking fair wages, improved benefits, a voice on the job, fair work rules and they want to be treated with respect,” Smith said.
The company produces engineered additives for niche applications.
The workers tried to form a union in 2006, but the effort fell short.
