The Hall China Company, GMP Reach Labor Agreement

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Three more years of labor accord have been assured at The Hall China
Company as it reached agreement on a new contract with employees,
members of Glass, Molders, Pottery, Plastics Allied Workers Union
(GMP) Local 417. The deal impacts 90 workers and their families from
East Liverpool, Ohio, and its surrounding communities. The Hall China
Company operates its own pottery in Ohio, across the Ohio River from the
West Virginia-headquartered Homer Laughlin China Company, of which Hall
China is a part.

Union President Eric Gorrell and his team worked with Hall China parent
company, HLC, Inc. on the labor contract, working diligently and truly
pressing late into the night as the deadline for the expiring contract
drew near. The new agreement was signed just past midnight on November

Homer Laughlin President Elizabeth McIlvain said, “We are pleased to
have reached a new labor agreement with our Hall China team—a contract
that keeps manufacturing for Hall’s high-quality specialty dinnerware
right here in East Liverpool where it has been a staple since 1903.”

McIlvain added, “Although healthcare prices have continued to rise, we
were able to reach an agreement that suited both parties. This
three-year contract demonstrates that both sides were committed to
reaching a consensus.”

About The Hall China Company

The Hall China Company was founded in 1903 in East Liverpool, Ohio, by
Robert Taggart Hall. By 1930, after three decades of rapid growth, the
company’s three separate operations facilities were consolidated into
the present plant location. Recently Hall China joined Homer Laughlin
China under the HLC Inc. umbrella. Today, Homer Laughlin sets the table
with its vast selection of dinnerware, and Hall completes the setting,
with center-of-table accessories, serving ware, and
freezer-to-oven-to-table cookware. By combining the companies’ design
and manufacturing expertise, the two-plant collective produces products
that are both lower in cost and superior in quality, while continuing to
employ hundreds of Americans working at both operations. For more
