Deere, UAW Reach Tentative Labor Agreement

Written by Sandy Williams

UAW workers will soon be voting on a new labor contract at John Deere factories. After a month of negotiations, a tentative agreement was announced on Oct. 1 following the expiration of the previous agreement at midnight on Sept. 30.

The new agreement will cover John Deere workers at 12 factories in Iowa, Illinois and Kansas for the next six years. Details on the contract are being kept confidential due to a prior agreement by the company and union.

The tentative agreement will be discussed and voted on by the 10,000 members in the coming week and is expected to be ratified.
