Sea-3 Members of IBEW 1837 Ratify 2-Year Contract

June 21, 2016 - Union members working at the Sea-3 propane terminal facility in Newington, New Hampshire have voted to ratify a 2-Year contract. Voting concluded Monday afternoon on the agreement which will run through June 30, 2018.

All terms and conditions in the previous contract will continue without change. The 10 members of the IBEW 1837 bargaining unit will receive wage increases of 2 ½% each year.

Sea-3 has indicated that they have not been profitable in recent years. A proposed expansion of the Newington rail facility that could expand the work there has been put on hold by Sea-3’s parent company, Trammo.

IBEW 1837 Business Manager Dick Rogers and Assistant Business Manager Tom Ryan appreciated the work of their fellow negotiating team members: Chief Steward Steve Paine and Steward Al Newton.

“Our team felt going in that if we were able to secure a reasonable wage package, our members would be satisfied,” Ryan said. “We’re glad that we were able to maintain the rest of the contract as is. We hope that the company decides to complete their expansion plans to provide more work for our members in the future.”
