Libbey Glass union workers re-negotiate new offer


Union workers at the Libbey Glass plant in Shreveport met with company officials Thursday afternoon to re-negotiate after rejecting the company's new offer Wednesday.

A United Steel Workers union representative said union members voted against the glass company's latest offer Wednesday evening after the company refused to increase company contributions to pension plans. Both parties have not agreed to a wage increase either.

The company is reportedly offering a three-year contract that will give union members a $1000 bonus the first year, a two percent pay raise the second year and a two and half percent pay raise the third year.

The current contract extension will end on January 4, 2012.
