On June 6, 80 employees at Certain Teed wallboard plant in Proctor, West Virginia voted “Yes” to join the International Chemical Workers Union Council of the UFCW. In December an activist from Local 45c, Lance Heasley, was at a local restaurant and overheard workers talking about problems that their employer was giving them with increased healthcare costs as well as giving the workers very little respect on the job and he began speaking to the workers about his union. In April an organizing drive began in earnest. The company immediately hired Jackson Lewis for their anti-union campaign. International Reps. Ron Moore and Ted Deloach assisted Lance and filed the petition with the support of the workers organizing committee. The workers held together and won representation to better themselves and their families in Local 45c for years to come. Congratulations to the workers at Certain Teed! Good job, Lance, Ron, and Ted and Organizing Director George Ortiz!
