Labor dispute may be over at Rotek; many workers to return

Aurora Advocate Published:

Aurora — Union workers who had been away from their jobs for 18 1/2 months voted Aug. 3 to accept a settlement proposal from Rotek Inc., according to Bill Hyslop, president of Steelworkers Local 8565.

Hyslop said union workers “overwhelming” voted at the Ravenna VFW Hall to return to work, although he declined to give out specific vote totals. The vote is subject to approval by the National Labor Relations Board, he said.

Hyslop said there are about 85 hourly union workers who expect to return to work at Rotek “within the next month.”
