NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD CERTIFIES STEELWORKERS AS BARGAINING AGENT AT RHEEM MANUFACTURING

 NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD CERTIFIES STEELWORKERS
 AS BARGAINING AGENT AT RHEEM MANUFACTURING
 PITTSBURGH, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), overturning a hearing officer's finding, has declared the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) the winner of a representation election at the Milledgeville, Ga., plant of Rheem Manufacturing.
 The NLRB ruling makes the USWA the exclusive bargaining agent for the plant's 1,050 workers.
 The election was held Aug. 31, 1990, with the workers voting 527-467 in favor of the USWA. The company appealed, contending improper conduct by NLRB agents overseeing the election. The hearing officer agreed with the company and ordered a new election.
 The USWA appealed to the NLRB, which found in favor of the union. The NLRB decision, dated Nov. 10, was received by the USWA today.
 "Now that the NLRB has ruled, the union is prepared to begin bargaining on a first contract for our new members," said Joe Kiker, director of USWA District 35 in Atlanta.
 "I call on the company to join with us and engage in good faith collective bargaining."
 The union also represents 1,500 Rheem workers in Fort Smith, Ark., as well as workers at several Rheem plants in Canada who are ecstatic with the board's ruling, Kiker said.
