New Era Cap Statement in response to Teamsters rallies
Jan '08
New Era Cap Company issued the following statement in response to rallies organized by the Teamsters Union in Alabama.

New Era is the only major cap manufacturer making headwear in the United States and employs approximately 1,500 Americans in its four U.S. facilities

Eighty-one percent of New Era's Alabama workforce are African-American and 39 percent of the administrators and managers at the three plants are minorities

New Era's Mobile facility has not received one discrimination complaint since 2005; no complaints have been filed at the company's three Alabama plants in the last two years; and the two complaints filed earlier with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission were dismissed without merit

New Era spent the last five years working in concert with its labor union, the Fair Labor Association and the university community to demonstrate its commitment to abide by and embrace the codes of conduct

New Era has excellent labor relations with the Communications Workers of America (CWA) at its Derby, New York, facility and the two were joint recipients of Cornell University's
"Champions Work" award, in recognition of the ongoing cooperative relationship

Since 2003, New Era has maintained a highest approval rating with the FLA

New Era conducts annual, third-party, unannounced audits of its facilities

New Era offers a compensation and benefit package above the average for the industry and above the median for Alabama
