According to a Jan. 23 press release from CNH Industrial, striking workers at 2 CNH Industrial factories represented by UAW have ratified a labor agreement and ended a strike that began in May 2022.
The employees voted on, and accepted, a "Last, Best and Final Offer" presented by CNH Industrial after a mediation session conducted by U.S. Secretary of Labor, Martin Walsh. Walsh had stated in an Oct. 3 report from Radio Iowa regarding the strike that he was "willing to help in any way he can."
“I would like to thank our bargaining team, the UAW leadership, and Mr. Walsh, who helped us navigate the complexities of the negotiation process and end the strike,” said Scott W. Wine, chief executive officer, CNH Industrial. “We look forward to welcoming our employees back to work, building the machines that help our customers feed the world and build its essential infrastructure.”
UAW President Ray Curry had told the Associated Press in a Jan. 19 article that the union was "close to reaching another agreement with CNH Industrial that improves a deal rejected by striking workers earlier this month."
