April 6, 2018

An Ohio-based subsidiary of Seguin-based heavy machinery manufacturer Alamo Group ended a weeks-long strike Thursday.

Employees are expected to resume work at Gradall Industries, Inc. — located in New Philadelphia, Ohio — on April 9 under a new contract.

The union strike at Gradall Industries began on March 12, a day after Alamo Group was notified, according to a company news release. Gradall Industries constructs excavators, industrial mobile vacuums and sweepers, and firefighting equipment, according to the company’s website.

Approximately 200 workers of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers from District Lodge 54, Local Lodge 1285 went on strike as negotiations for a new contract were ongoing.

Gradall Industries was bought by Alamo Group in 2006 for $39.4 million.
