Representatives from both the company and the Union expressed their appreciation for the high level of professionalism and efficiency that extended beyond the negotiating teams to the entire workforce at the Texarkana plant. The parties are equally consistent in their optimism for the future of the Texarkana facility and the ability of the plant employees to be even more productive under the terms of the new contract. In addition to wage and benefit changes which will be implemented over the course of the four-year accord, the company plans additional investment in the plant, which was applauded by both salaried and hourly employees.
