Plant & Employees now content on contracts

November 9, 2006

Mitchell County - - The Equity Group, formerly the Cagle's Chicken Plant in Mitchell County, will dish out an extra $7,000,000 in wages to its employees.

That's according to labor union representative Edgar Fields, who helped employees negotiate a new contract.

Many workers were upset with Equity's proposed 3 year renewal contract.

They negotiated for more flexible time off, better wages, and higher pension payments.

The company agreed to those requests and issued a statement Thursday saying it has a good relationship with the labor union and looks forward to working with them in the future.
