April 30, 2003

Albany - Union members and Merck agree on a new contract without a strike or walk-out. Local 609-C includes more than 200 hourly employees. They approved a local contract with the Flint River Plant today. The employees include laboratory technicians, maintenance workers, chemical operators, and other employees.

The Union and Merck had already reached an agreement on a master contract covering five U.S. Plants, including the Albany operation. The master agreement covers wage and benefit issues while the local contract covers workplace issues. There was no stoppage or strike during the negotiations.
