Oshkosh Corp. UAW union votes to re-open contract talks, in hopes of winning contract


OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - The United Auto Workers Local 578 has voted to re-open contract talks with Oshkosh Corporation after a request from the military vehicle maker that hopes to gain a competitive edge in bidding on a $13 billion contract. 

Oshkosh asked the union to consider extending their current contract that expires in 2016.  Oshkosh is looking to push the end date out another five years. 

Fox 11 reports that Oshkosh is also looking for possible changes in healthcare, terms of layoffs and adding new entry level positions. 

Union leaders did not want to talk after the Wednesday vote.
