CNH Industrial has provided the following statement to Farm Equipment regarding the Fargo negotiations:

CNH leadership continues to work diligently with the IAM to reach an agreement for our Fargo plant. While the existing contract expired at midnight on April 28, 2024, the parties have agreed to extend the contract through Friday, May 3, 2024, to allow additional time for an agreement to be reached.

Nearly 700 members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Local 2525 (District 5) at Case New Holland (CNH) in Fargo, N.D., have rejected the company’s offer, according to an April 29 press release from the union. The current agreement has been extended until Friday, May 3 to address the members’ concerns. IAM Local 2525 members are in pursuit of improved pay rates, healthcare and job security.

The press release listed the following members concerns:

  • Increased wages, retaining their health care, and job security
  • Working towards an agreement that provides economic stability, job security, work-life balance
  • Members feel like they are undervalued and unappreciated and stand firm that they will not accept an agreement that doesn’t address their concerns

Contract discussions between CNH Industrial and union-represented workers at the Fargo, N.D., plant were described by a union leader as "intense"" in an April 24 report from KFGO.
