SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – Navistar employees agreed to a new four year labor contract.
The United Auto Workers union ratified the deal over the weekend. The new contract replaces the prior contract that expired in October 2014.
“The new contract will help our UAW-represented facilities embrace lean principles, which will allow them to remain competitive in today’s business environment,” said Troy Clarke, Navistar president and chief executive officer. “The contract also helps our UAW-represented employees and retirees maintain a good standard of living.”
The UAW represents about 1,500 employees at five Navistar facilities including Springfield’s plant. The workers include engineering and engine assembly, truck assembly and parts distributors.
Navistar is one of Clark County’s largest companies.
