The agreement, struck early this morning between Oryza and leaders of Local 208 of the United Electrical, Radio and Machine Workers of America, next moves to a ratification vote by the bargaining unit's approximately 350 workers.
Leland Rice, President of Oryza, praised negotiating teams on both sides for bargaining intensively but respectfully.
"This agreement strikes a good balance between the need for fiscal responsibility in a time of economic challenges and our employees' desire for fair wages and benefits," Mr. Rice said. "Most importantly, the agreement enables us to provide long-term stability and continuity of service to the immigrant population that relies on us."
The Vermont Service Center provides vital record-keeping and document-processing services for immigrants in the Eastern United States.
