The cards will now be sent to a neutral arbitrator, paving the way for the company to officially recognize the 315 workers, which is expected to occur within a week. The workers belong to the following local unions: Local 25 in Boston; Local 170 in Worcester, Massachusetts, Local 251 in E. Providence, Rhode Island; Local 340 in S. Portland, Maine; Local 404 in Springfield, Massachusetts; Local 443 in New Haven, Connecticut, and Local 633 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
