Wis. Harley Workers Approve Labor Contract

WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- Harley-Davidson workers in Wisconsin approved a labor contract on Monday that included a number of steep concessions after the company threatened to move hundreds of production jobs out of the state.

The proposed seven-year deal will freeze their pay and still slash some jobs.

Harley-Davidson executives had said they would move production out of Wisconsin if the contract was rejected. That would have eliminated about 1,350 jobs.
