Legal victory for 140 workers against Covanta

(Rochester and West Wareham, Massachusetts, USA) Judge ruled that the company owes those workers nearly US$ 1 million for withholding wage increases and bonuses in retaliation for staff exercising their lawful right to join the UWUA (Utility Workers Union of America) in the year 2008. The illegal conduct of Covanta caused workers to lose between 8% and 11% of their annual income in 2009. The victory also obliges Covanta to bargain with UWUA Local 369 before making any unilateral workplace changes.
