UAW ratifies 5-year contract with Mack Trucks



(The Center Square) – United Auto Workers union members ratified a new five-year collective bargaining agreement with Mack Trucks covering about 3,900 employees at facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida.

“The new agreement guarantees significant wage growth and delivers excellent benefits for our employees and their families,” Mack President Stephen Roy said in a statement. “At the same time, it will safeguard our competitiveness and allow us to continue making the necessary investments in our people, plants and products.”

The deal follows the union rejecting a prior deal.

The UAW posted on social media: “After 39 days on strike, UAW members at Mack Trucks have voted by 93% to ratify their new contract with significant local improvements.”

The companies haven’t revealed specific contract details.

Mack Trucks is part of the Volvo Group and employs nearly 100,000 people in infrastructure, construction and transportation services.

The strike concludes as the UAW votes on whether to ratify contracts with the Big Three Automakers to possibly end a six-week strike of workers seeking better pay and benefits.
