Agreement Near at Oshkosh Corp

OSHKOSH, Wis. (WHBL) - Wisconsin’s famous maker of military vehicles is apparently close to reaching a new tentative agreement on a five-year contract. Almost 31-hundred union employees at the Oshkosh Corporation have rejected two previous contract proposals. But both sides have continued to talk – and they’re in a third day of negotiations on a new deal. Company spokesman John Daggett said the talks yesterday went well – and one more session was needed today to get the new agreement finalized. If a tentative deal is set today, union president Nick Nitschke says a vote by the United Auto Workers will take place tomorrow morning. The two main points of disagreement have been the proposed hiring of temporary employees – and a company plan to have layoffs based on productivity, and not just seniority.
