Volney, NY–UNITE HERE Local 701T members at Interface Solutions ratified a new contract last Friday. The new contract came almost two months after the company locked out union members when they began picketing the plant following failed contract negotiations. The local had announced that it would file a lawsuit against the company, claiming various violations of the labor agreement. The first shift of workers returned to the plant earlier this week. Workers at Interface Solutions manufacture flooring felt and gasket products for automobile makers.
