CNH Industrial union workers end strike at two US factories with agreement

Jan 22 (Reuters) – Members of two local unions at CNH Industrial NV (CNHI.MI) Factories in Wisconsin and Iowa reached agreement on a new contract on Saturday, ending a strike that had been ongoing since last May, the United Auto Workers union said.

The contract, which was voted as a “last, best, last offer” improved by CNH Industrial workers, included wage increases, shift premium increases, classification upgrades and other improvements, the UAW said in a statement.

The UAW, which represents more than 1,000 hourly workers at the two plants, did not release details of the vote.

CNH officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

More than 1,000 union members in Racine, Wis., and Burlington, Iowa quit their jobs as equipment manufacturers in May after six-year contracts at the facilities expired.

The deal came after local unions had this month rejected a provisional contract.
