UAW members at Caterpillar voted on Sunday, March 26th, to ratify their tentative Central Agreement. All local agreements have been ratified except UAW Local 974 Peoria. UAW Local 974 has rescheduled their supplemental local agreement vote for April 1, 2017. UAW members should check for the location and time with their local union. The six-year agreements cover over 5,000 members in Illinois and Pennsylvania.
The Caterpillar UAW bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement. No details will be publicly released until Caterpillar UAW members have had a chance to review the agreement and highlights, and vote on the agreement. UAW members should check with their local unions which will set meetings, including date, time and place to review the details of the contract and conduct ratification votes next week.
