"The Hugo Boss workers at the company's factory in Brooklyn, Ohio just overwhelmingly ratified a new three-year contract. The tremendous efforts of the workers, as well as the efforts of many elected and community allies, have led to this tremendous moment."

Workers United, SEIU is a union of 150,000 workers in the US and Canada who work in the manufacturing, distribution, laundry, food service, hospitality, gaming, apparel and textile industries.

Joint Statement by Hugo Boss and Workers United, SEIU
Workers United, SEIU and Hugo Boss Cleveland bargaining teams have announced that they have reached a tentative agreement early Friday morning on all issues on a successor contract. Once ratified by the union's 300 members, the scheduled April 27 closure of the company's Brooklyn, Ohio facility will be canceled. The union's ratification vote is scheduled for Friday morning.

The agreement is designed to improve the company's competitive position by increasing its flexibility and reducing costs.

Workers United President Bruce Raynor explained that, "Against all odds, we have saved a critical U.S. apparel manufacturing facility in Brooklyn, Ohio. This is a tremendous result that we attribute to our Hugo Boss members who stood up for their jobs. We thank Governor Strickland, Senator Brown, Congressman Kucinich, Danny Glover, all of our allies in labor, and other leaders in the community who stood beside us to maintain good jobs in Ohio."

Hugo Boss Cleveland is pleased with the result that makes the Cleveland facility more globally competitive.

The company stated, "Our employees are important to the company and the future success of the facility."
