Parker Hannifin workers approve new contract

Union workers at Parker Hannifin’s Gear Pump Division here are getting a raise and eventually will pay more for their health care.

They approved a new contract Tuesday afternoon after a vote last week ended in a tie.

In a 77-46 tally, the workers — members of United Steelworkers of America Local 2332 — approved the deal, which will last into January of 2018. Their previous contract expired in February, but the parties had an extension to collectively bargain until the end of this month.

Under the new agreement, workers will receive a 3 percent raise, and will have to pay more in health care costs in the fourth year of the contract, starting one month before it expires, according to a USW representative.

“This is nowhere near a concessionary agreement,” said Jim Lee, a union representative who helped negotiate the deal. “It’s a very fair agreement.”

Workers were split on a contract vote last week. Under that deal, two to three positions would have been combined or eliminated, Lee said.

But those stipulations were removed before the new vote. All other terms remained the same, Lee said.

A company spokesman did not return requests for an interview.

Parker Hannifin manufactures motion and control technologies and systems for mobile, industrial and aerospace markets, the company’s website said.

The company’s gear- pump division produces hydraulic gear pumps for a variety of industries.
