Southwire provides a desirable workplace for our employees with fair compensation and a well-developed company culture based on a “family feel.” The majority of Southwire’s employees are full-time, hourly workers. With positive employee relations, collective bargaining agreements covered approximately 3 percent of our full-time employees in 2018, which includes those employees located at our Waukegan, Illinois, manufacturing operations.
