The Covington Paperworkers Union says they have ratified the WestRock offer after a vote Thursday. This means that the union has agreed on a new contract that was presented by union representatives for the papermill’s workers.
94 percent of the eligible members voted, with 54 percent in favor for the new contract.
No further negotiations will take place.
It is the first new contract offered to WestRock workers in Covington since 2010.
