Perrigo Company (PRGO) Factory Workers Strike Over Wages


9/6/2012 7:28:03 AM

More than 350 people who work at a Perrigo manufacturing plant in the Bronx, New York, after contract talks last week failed. The unionized employees returned to the facility after the Labor Day weekend, but found themselves locked out and now find themselves in a stalemate. The plant manufactures various ointments and creams. The dispute aroses as a contract expired at midnight on August 31. Perrigo, which makes a wide array of over-the-counter and prescription products, offered a three-year wage increase of $1.80 an hour, but the workers want more. They tell The New York Daily News the starting wage at the factory is too low. Most new workers begin at $8.50 an hour and many longtime workers make under $15 an hour despite decades on the job.
