OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Talks resume tomorrow between the Oshkosh Corporation and its major employee union.

Members of the United Auto Workers voted down a new five-year contract offer on Friday, and its leaders said it would consider a strike vote.

But now, both sides say they want to reach a settlement without a walkout.

The head of the UAW chapter at Oshkosh, Nick Nitschke, says he employees will work under its old contract for now.

More talks are set for Tuesday and Thursday.

Nitschke says the major disagreements involve work-place issues, and the company’s plans to hire temporary workers starting in 2013.
