Navistar says it has tentative six-year deal with UAW

Navistar said today the company has a tentative six-year deal with members of the United Auto Workers, who are expected to vote Sunday on whether to ratify the contract.

Company officials said the truck maker will not discuss any details of the contract before the Dec. 16 vote. Members of the UAW Local 402, which represents the majority of its workers in Springfield, could not be immediately reached for comment.

“We are confident that this agreement will help us work as a team to competitively build our vehicles, run our plants and win in the market,” the company said in a statement on a website dedicated to the negotiations.

This is the second time this month that members of the labor union will vote on a potential contract.

The UAW voted Dec. 2 to reject a separate agreement. According to the UAW's website, the union voted down that contract with 98 percent of the vote.
