UAW Reached Tentative Agreement with Mack Trucks
Strike Ends with Gains
The UAW Mack Truck Council announced that they have reached a tentative agreement today, suspending a nearly two-week strike.
“Through great sacrifice, UAW members at Mack have achieved significant gains toward fair pay, benefits and job security protections,” said UAW Secretary-Treasurer and Director of the UAW Heavy Truck Department, Ray Curry.
Curry said the strike will be suspended and Mack workers will be scheduled to return to their jobs. “It is not easy to strike for a member or their family,” said Curry. “It is impressive the unity that Mack UAW members and their families have shown. We can’t thank enough the surrounding communities for the outpouring of support for our striking families.”
Details of the tentative agreement will be withheld until UAW members can be briefed prior to ratification. “Out of respect for our members, we will refrain from discussing details publicly until they can be fully briefed. Ultimately it is our members’ contract, and UAW Mack members will make the final decision as they vote.”
Mack Trucks has facilities in Macungie, PA; Middletown, PA; Hagerstown, MD; Baltimore, MD; and Jacksonville, FL.
