Dynisco LLC and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers have signed a four-year agreement.
Health care and pensions were key issues, said Paul Salemme, business agent for IAM Local 264, District 38. Negotiations took about two months. The deal was announced Aug. 5.
``We all recognized the current business climate and came to the table with a short list of requests,'' Salemme said.
Bill Del Signore, vice president of operations for the auxiliary equipment maker, said Dynisco has ``a good relationship with the union that goes back over 30 years.'' The average Dynisco employee has worked at the Franklin company 15 years, he said.
Del Signore called the contract ``a good foundation ... to build upon as the economic recovery begins.''
