                Chemical Workers Welcome our new Local 1049C!


In the 1940s, the employees of PPG/Columbian Chemicals (Now just PPG) formed the International Allied Chemical and Alkali Workers Union Local #1,  an Independent Union.  With the changing times in the workplace, the members of the small Independent Union knew that they needed to affiliate with a larger International Union. After talking with many different International Unions, they found that the ICWUC/UFCW was the fit that they were looking for. In September, 2013, the Executive Board of the International Allied Chemical and Alkali Workers of America voted to put before their members their decision to affiliate with the International Chemical Workers Council of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.  A vote of the membership overwhelmingly chose the ICWUC/UFCW to represent them. The ICWUC has worked with them on numerous issues from safety to ongoing grievances. With the help of ICWUC President Frank Cyphers, Vice President and ICWUC Region 4 Director Jerry Hurocy, ICWUC Attorneys Randy Vehar and Bob Lowery, ICWUC Health and Safety Director Darrell Hornbeck and International Representative Ron Moore, our newly chartered Local 1049C is now a part of the UFCW.   Local 1049C members ratified their first three year contract as members of the ICWUC/UFCW on February 27, 2014.
