WARRENVILLE, Ill. (AP) — International Truck and Engine Corp. reached a tentative agreement Wednesday with the United Auto Workers leadership on three-year contracts for 3,700 striking workers, the company said.
UAW members were expected to vote this weekend on the agreement, details of which were not publicly disclosed. If approved by a majority of those voting, the contracts would replace five-year agreements that expired Oct. 1.
UAW spokesman Larry Sharp, president of Local 6 in Melrose, Ill., confirmed the agreement but declined to make further comment because specifics of the deal were not available.
Workers at local unions in six states have been on strike against the company since Oct. 23, alleging unfair labor practices.
International Truck and Engine, a unit of Navistar International Corp., shifted customer orders to its other locations when the strike began in order to keep production going.
The UAW represents employees at nine International Truck and Engine facilities in Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, Ind.; Melrose Park; Springfield, Ohio; Atlanta; York, Pa., and Dallas.
