HAPPENING NOW: Negotiations resume for Shreveport Libbey Glass workers


Contract negotiations resumed Friday morning for Libbey Glass union workers after members voted down a tentative contract agreement Thursday night.

Thursday evening, union members voted on the tentative contract agreement that included better pay and pension contributions, but union members early Friday morning decided they would reject the company's final offer.

Back on Thursday, December 15th union members and the company negotiated the first deal and set a vote date.

No word on why union members rejected the tentative contract; however, negotiations began again at 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Stay tuned for updates.
