Organizing Victories Mount in Water Utilities

Water and wastewater workers are proving to be an important area of growth for the UWUA. In addition to the 30-plus members who just celebrated their first contract victory in Belmont, OH, American Water’s wastewater workers in Arnold, MO voted to join the UWUA on May 13. They will become part of St. Louis, MO Local 335
“We are on a roll here,” says Local 335 President Allan Bathon. “When water workers know what we’ve been able to achieve through collective bargaining, they want to join the union.”
