Today, Sept. 30, by over 85 percent, the members of UAW Local 578 rejected a tentative contract offer by the Oshkosh Corp. The tentative agreement contained numerous wage cut proposals including an Oshkosh Crop. proposal that would increase the workers health care family contribution from $70 to $280 a month. If accepted this kind of proposal would be a wage cut for a single worker of thousands of dollars over the proposed 5 year contract. This despite the Oshkosh Corp. making billions of dollars in recent years. The UAW members at Oshkosh Corp. voting down the tentative agreement said they’ve had enough of corporate greed and want a better tentative agreement that respects them, their families and communities. Local 578 and Oshkosh Corp. are discussing next steps including restarting bargaining. Updates will be forthcoming.
