Mediator involved in Good Humor-Breyer's talks

September 11, 1998

A Good Humor-Breyer's Ice Cream official said Thursday that a mediator is involved in negotiations between the company and union workers at the company's Frederick Street plant in Hagerstown.

Union and management representatives met twice with the mediator last Thursday and Friday, said Mark Freeman, vice president of human resources at the company's corporate headquarters in Green Bay, Wis.

The mediator was assigned at the request of the parties by the Federal Mediation Service, an independent federal agency, he said. Union officials confirmed that a mediator was involved in the negotiations.

Freeman said he couldn't say much about the negotiations and declined to provide any further information on the mediator.

The 431 union members at the plant are working without a contract, said union president Larry Lorshbaugh, president of United Steelworkers of America Local 9386.

Workers at the plant overwhelmingly rejected the last contract offer by the company on Aug. 3, he said.
