Missouri and Illinois – IBEW Locals 1 and 309 are continuing to boycott Rexel Supply over Rexel’s efforts to take away protections from their employees.
Local 1 and Rexel have been in contract negotiations for roughly eight months, but Rexel is trying to make its new contract mirror the contract they have with their non-union affiliates.
