Aluminum Union OKs New Contracts With Alcoa And Reynolds

A St. Louis-based aluminum workers union on Wednesday agreed to new contracts with the Aluminum Co. of America and Reynolds Metals Co., ending the threat of a walkout.

Aluminum, Brick and Glassworkers union members voted for six-year contracts with the companies. No breakdown of the vote was available, said John Murphy, the union's chief negotiator. The union is based in St. Louis, although neither Alcoa nor Reynolds has a plant in Missouri.

The agreement increases wages by $1.15 per hour spread over five years.
