UAW Mack Truck Workers Ratify Contract
Strike nets fair pay, benefits and job security protections
DETROIT – UAW Mack Truck members ratified a four-year collective bargaining agreement by over 79% on Sunday.
“Through the new four-year agreement, the UAW looks to further expand its long-term relationship with Mack Trucks. The members at Mack were able to hold the line on health care and add job security provisions and substantial raises during a difficult economic time in the industry,” said UAW Secretary-Treasurer and director of the UAW Heavy Truck Department, Ray Curry.
“The solidarity of Mack Truck workers on the picket line achieved significant wage increases, bonuses, job security protections and held the line on health care costs,” said Curry. Our members look forward to returning to their jobs of designing and building Mack Trucks for the marketplace.
Curry said strikes are never easy on members or their families. “We can’t thank enough the surrounding communities for the outpouring of support for our striking families.”
Mack Trucks has facilities in Macungie, PA; Middletown, PA; Hagerstown, MD; Baltimore, MD; and Jacksonville, FL.
