Bobcat workers in Minnesota vote to join United Steelworkers

March 29, 2023
The vote was overseen by the National Labor Relations Board, and approximately 200 employees from the Rogers plant will now have union representation.

Workers at Bobcat’s Rogers, Minnesota, plant have voted to join the United Steelworkers (USW) union. The vote was overseen by the National Labor Relations Board, and approximately 200 employees from the Rogers plant will now have union representation. This announcement comes after Bobcat workers in Bismarck, North Dakota, voted to join the USW in September of last year.

In a recent quote, USW International President Thomas M. Conway said, “Every worker needs a strong voice on the job and deserves to be treated with respect and dignity by their employer,” Conway said. “As USW members, Bobcat workers will have a strong advocate to bargain for better pay, benefits and working conditions.

A fair union contract will improve the standard of living for workers now without sacrificing the security of their jobs, earnings or benefits in the future.”
