Political Notes

January 25, 1998

Timothy D. McCown, a Democratic candidate for the 6th Congressional District, has announced his support for the 440 members of IUE Local 133, who he says have been locked out of their jobs since the summer by the Rotorex Co., a Frederick County compressor manufacturer.

The union is the International Union of Electronic, Electrical, Salaried Machine and Furniture Workers.

A subsidiary of Fedders Corp., Rotarex has refused an offer by the local to keep working under an expired contract while negotiations continue, according to a news release from McCown.

Anyone wishing to make donations of food or cash for workers and their families may send them to IUE Local 133, 23 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Walkersville 21793.
