(AMANDA, Ohio) – Teamsters Local 637 members who work at Republic Services’ Pine Grove landfill ratified a first contract this week with the solid waste company after nearly two years of contentious negotiations.
The agreement was reached only after truck drivers, heavy equipment operators and mechanics at the Amanda facility rejected what Republic called its last, best and final offer in April that would have amounted to a pay cut. Both sides returned to the bargaining table on June 14 before hammering out a tentative deal that was approved by workers.
