In a recent announcement, the City of Xenia outlined the steps management is planning to take in order to meet budgetary shortfalls and lower revenues.

If you are driving around the City of Beavercreek, you may see union picketers standing at the intersection of Grange Hall and Dayton-Xenia Rd. claiming R.B. Jergens is “unfair” to its employees. This is an unusual sight in our area; what is even more unusual, is that those holding the signs are not even Jergens employees. They are instead representatives of Local 1410, the Laborers International Union of North America.
