Racine workers on strike since May approve new deal

More than 1,000 CNH Industrial workers who have been on strike since last May approved a new contract with the maker of tractors, bulldozers, backhoes, and other heavy equipment, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The United Auto Workers said union members in Racine, Wisconsin, and Burlington, Iowa, approved the deal two weeks after they rejected an earlier proposal. The union didn’t disclose any details of what is included in the contract.

Previously, CNH Industrial said the last offer that workers rejected included raises of 28% to 38% over four years.
