IAMAW-Represented Workers Vote To Ratify ‘Strong’ New Contract At Harley-Davidson In Pennsylvania - Five-Year Agreement Eliminates Two-Tier Wage System

(YORK, PENNSYLVANIA) - Members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) Local 175 who are employed at the Harley-Davidson York, Pennsylvania Plant have overwhelmingly ratified a new, industry-leading, five-year Collective Bargaining Agreement, Union Officials announced.

The York Facility is Harley-Davidson’s Vehicle Operations Plant, assembles motorcycles and performs other manufacturing functions.

 “We are glad Harley-Davidson realized a two-tier system for the workforce is not good for the bottom line,” IAM Eastern Territory General Vice President David Sullivan said. “This contract reflects IAM Local (175) Members’ skills and dedication to making Harley-Davidson one of the most successful iconic brands in the world.  I want to thank the Negotiating Committee for their patience in getting our Members a deal that locks in increased wages and benefits.”

IAM District 98 Assistant Directing Business Representative Kermit Forbes said: “Our Members had concerns over the two-tier wage scale.  Their solidarity paid off and together the Membership won the day, eliminating the two-tier wage system at the end of the agreement.  My thanks go out to the Negotiating Committee and the Membership.”
