WATERFORD, N.Y.—Momentive Performance Materials Inc., a global leader in silicones and advanced materials, and the IUE-CWA union reached a tentative three-year agreement on June 18.
The agreement delivers employment opportunities for the region, market-competitive wages, a competitive benefits package and promotes a safe work environment.
Talks began on June 3 and lasted two weeks.
Representatives from both sides were pleased that the tentative agreement had been reached. IUE-CWA conference board chairman Bob Santamoor said the deal provides security to allow union members to transition into the new landscape of American retirement and health care.
The IUE-CWA union represents 60 employees at sites in Willoughby, Ohio, and 700 employees in Waterford, N.Y. The union is expected to vote on the agreement by the end of the week.
