TRW and union resume talks in two weeks
By: Charley Hannagan

Talks between the union and management at the TRW plant in Auburn broke off Thursday, but both sides plan to resume talks on June 6, a company spokesman said this afternoon.

Negotiators from the plant that makes electronic automotive parts and the ICWU/UFCW Local 192 C took place on three days earlier this week.

Both sides remain willing to talk, said John Wilkerson, speaking for the company. June 6, was the next best available date for both sides to resume negotiations, he said in an email.

The company’s three-year contract with the union representing 150 workers expired May 8 and workers set up picket lines at the Crane Brook Drive plant.

The sticking point in the talks have been company demands to hire more temporary workers and to expand shift hours from 8 to 10 or 12 hours. The company has offered some workers a 4 percent salary increase.

Workers are paid $12.13 per hour.

They gave up 93 cents per hour in the last contract along with some vacation and holiday time
