Erie Strayer CEO releases statement after agreement with union

Local News

After months of negotiations, the Erie Strayer Company successfully reached an agreement with the Ironworkers union for a new five-year contract on Dec. 17.

Workers from the union had been on strike for more than two months. 

In an official statement on Wednesday, Erie Strayer president and CEO Kyle Strayer said:

“We are extremely pleased to have reached terms with the union on a contract that brings our employees back to work before the Christmas holiday and also one that ensures labor peace and stability for years to come.  The length and the terms of the contract will allow our company to remain competitive in our increasingly consolidated industry, while also allowing Erie Strayer to offer new employment opportunities to members of our valuable community starting at the rate of $19.00/hour for fitters, welders and mechanical assemblers. Now that all is resolved, our focus remains on servicing our customers and producing the rugged, reliable and respected products that our company has manufactured for over 100 years.”
