USA: Strike-Hit Baseball Cap Firm In Union Talks
Baseball cap manufacturer New Era Cap Co has presented a 900-page report to the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) in a bid to end the 10 month-long strike at its factory in Derby, New York.
The firm, which makes caps for Major League players as well as colleges and universities, has been in dispute with union chiefs since June when scores of workers went on strike over new rates of pay.
"The answers and documents we supplied to the WRC - along with the open tour of our facility - demonstrate that we are a well run company, an excellent employer and shows our commitment to meet or exceed WRC's code of conduct," said New Era Cap president Chris Koch.
"Now that the WRC has had a chance to see for themselves what we are all about, we hope they will take an objective view of the evidence we presented and make an informed decision."
