Hormel to End Union Contract

Associated Press

Geo. A. Hormel & Co., said today that it will terminate its contract with the meatpackers’ union at its company headquarters plant, where workers have been protesting a 23% wage cut.

Local P-9 of the United Food and Commercial Workers union, which represents about 1,700 meatpackers at the Austin plant, has been conducting a campaign against Hormel, seeking to arouse public pressure on the company to restore base pay to $10.69 an hour.
