A group of Smithville workers, and Communications Workers of America union members participated in an informational picket outside Smithville, a local internet provider, and telecommunications company on Wednesday in Ellettsville, Indiana. The workers and the company are currently negotiating a union contract.
The Bloomingtonian reached out to Smithville owner and CEO Darby McCarty Wednesday by e-mail for a comment but had not received a response by Thursday afternoon.
The CWA sent the following statement to the media:
“Our union workers are dedicated employees who have helped Smithville succeed, and all we are asking for is a fair contract. For the first time ever, the CWA-union Smithville workers are doing an informational picket to raise awareness about our jobs and show commitment and solidarity with our bargaining team. We hope that Smithville responds in good faith to our efforts and members at the bargaining table.”
