ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Polar Tank Trailer and the International Associations of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) union have reached an agreement on a new five-year labour contract.

The agreement was ratified Tuesday through a majority vote by IAM members at Polar’s manufacturing facility in Opole, Minn.

IAM District 165, Local 623, represents approximately 365 employees at Opole.

The new contract, which includes the addition of a third and fourth shift, replaces the three-year agreement that expired on Nov. 30.

“The committee worked hard to negotiate an agreement that will benefit our employees and our business,” said Ted Fick, CEO of Polar Corp. “It’s another step forward in our efforts to meet the quality, cost, and delivery expectations of our customers.”

Last year, employees at the company’s Holdingford, Minn. and Springfield, Mo. facilities each ratified a five-year labour agreement negotiated by Polar and the IAM.
