Local 150 has successfully organized approximately 20 employees of Aggreko, which provides portable power solutions in the construction industry and at outdoor events. The National Labor Relations Board certified the results of last week’s election, in which Aggreko employees voted for Local 150 to serve as their exclusive bargaining representative. Negotiations on a first contract will begin shortly.
The success in this election came despite Aggreko’s campaign to convince employees not to join a union.
“This success has been a long time in the making,” said President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney. “This group of workers stood strong through a long organizing process, and we are proud to welcome them to Local 150. We look forward to building a strong relationship with Aggreko that benefits all parties.”
