Unionized workers of Harley Davidson ratify 5-year labor contract agreement

The agreements cover more than 1,000 employees in the Milwaukee and Tomahawk-area.

In a development that marks an increase in benefits for Harley Davidson’s employees, the bikemaker stated, its unionized workers in Milwaukee and Tomahawk, Wisconsin, have ratified a new 5-year labor contract agreement that sees a 14% rise in wages through the life of the contract.

The agreements also includes a signing bonus, pension enhancements for current employees, two separate variable incentive plans as well as a retirement incentive.

The agreements, ratified by the United Steelworkers (USW) and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers’ Lodge, cover more than 1,000 employees in the Milwaukee and Tomahawk area.

The development comes in the wake of Harley Davidson’s workers rejecting earlier this month the motorcycle maker’s proposal for a 5-year contract, citing non-financial issues such as temporary workers and job security.
