Strike ends at Cornerstone Community
LOCKPORT, N.Y. (8/27/08)--A strike at Cornerstone Community FCU, Lockport, N.Y., has ended. The Office of Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Local 212 voted Monday to ratify a negotiated agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement (BusinessFirst Aug. 26). Union members will return to work on Wednesday, according to the credit union. On Aug. 15, more than 70 union employees went on strike, which shut down two branches. At issue was the cost of health insurance premiums the credit union provides for staff. The employees were asked to contribute 5% of the monthly health insurance premium starting November 2009 (News Now Aug. 18). Terms of the new contract were not disclosed.
