Local 1626 offers thanks for lockout support

ON SEPTEMBER 29, 2015, Clifford-Jacobs IMT Corp. of Champaign, Ill., locked out all union employees. We were locked out until February 29, 2016. On behalf of Boilermakers Local 1626 of Champaign, we would like to thank everyone who supported us and who contributed money to help all of us through this extremely hard time. We are back to work now, and we are all very thankful for that. We would also like to thank [International] President Newton Jones for everything he had done for us. It was a good feeling to all of us involved with this lockout to have all the backing and support we received.

THANK YOU TO ALL!

STEVE HARPER, PRESIDENT
Boilermakers Local 1626
