Rock-Tenn merges with Local 81288

Rock-Tenn, formally Local 284, has merged with IUE-CWA, Local 288 as of January 2015. Local 284 was put into receivership by the CWA International in 2014. Rock-Tenn has approximately 75 union members located on Parker Street in Springfield, Mass. We look forward to serving the needs of our new Brothers and Sisters from Rock-Tenn.

Styrolution closes Springfield Plant

Sadly, Styrolution announced in March 2014 that it was shutting down its Springfield plant in three phases with the final layoffs occurring at the end of the year. The union conducted impact bargaining to minimize the effects on the plant closing. This closing affected approximately 30 of our Brothers and Sisters. Some have taken positions within Styrolution between two plants in Texas and Illinois. As always we will be available to assist our displaced members in any way. Special thanks to Sean Larkin and Rich Maziarz for their dedicated leadership throughout this ordeal.
