ADT locked out the service technicians Feb. 19 after workers refused ADT’s final offer, which included wage cuts of up to 30 percent.
“This is a profitable operation in Winston-Salem,” said Winston-Salem Local 342 Business Manager Alvin Warwick. “Locking out their workers is absolute corporate greed.”
The workers voted for representation by Local 342 in 2013. They have been negotiating for a first contract since then.
ADT workers and IBEW members also picketed in front of the company’s annual shareholders meeting in Boca Raton, Fla.
More pickets are scheduled in the coming weeks.
One ADT employee told the Camel City Dispatch that workers are standing strong despite company intimidation: “[ADT is] just trying to starve you into something less.”
