Shreveport Libbey Glass workers agree to temporary contract

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

After negotiations, hundreds of union workers at Libbey Glass in Shreveport agreed to a temporary extension of their existing contract with the company Friday. The extension will last into next year.

Officials said the contract will give the glass-making company time to meet and decide whether they will vote in favor of a new, three-year offer.

Union members said they want more money for worker retirement benefits, but the company is not budging.

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

KSLA News 12 made calls to the Libbey Glass headquarters in Ohio, but calls have not been returned.
