 Well we have seen some issues in the plant this past week. Electrical issues have caused many work centers to go idle. This is a direct result of not spending the money to upgrade, maintain the sub stations and transformers over the last 10 or 20 years! 

 Rod is rolling in and Wiredraw is ramping up for next week.

NEW LOCATION!!!

Good Morning members and retirees of USW Local 5328.

Looks like rod has been an issue lately but the company is expecting delivery from other suppliers next week. Wiredraw should ramp up after next week. 

 Covid on the rise! Please follow proper protocols and sanitize your immediate work areas. Numbers are increasing and we need to stay safe!

 I’m sorry to report layoffs for next week, due  to the rod shortage. 

 I will quote the company’s info! As of 8:30 this morning! 

“We expect a two or three week layoff as we will receive the high carbon rod from Germany on or about April 11. It will take about 4 or 5 days to anneal, clean and draw the material for oil temper”. 

Good evening members and retirees of USW Local 5328.

 I’m happy to report that the strike at Contrecoeur is over. The company and union came to an agreement over the weekend and ratified on Monday.  We should start receiving rod in the next few weeks.
