Local 2017 President Matt Conway and his team have reached an agreement for members employed at Union Tank Car in Altoona, Pennsylvania. The five-year agreement provides for three percent annual wage increases in the first four years and a three and a half percent wage increase in year five. The agreement also provides members with incremental benefit and pension improvements over the five-year term. Local 2017 members have given the tentative agreement a thumps-up, and voted to ratify by a nearly two thirds margin.
