CNH Industrial Workers Avert Strike at Fargo Plant

One day after a contract was set to end between CNH Industrial and union workers at a Case wheel loaders plant in Fargo, ND, an agreement was reached to avert a strike and keep operations running at the factory.

Local 2525 of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers District 5 ratified a contract offer from the parent company of Case and New Holland equipment brands, according to a Facebook post May 4 on the union’s Facebook page.

About 700 members of the union voted April 27 to reject CNH’s initial offer, but to extend the existing contract until May 3 for further negotiations. IAM Local 2525 members sought better pay rates, healthcare and job security.

On May 4, CNH presented another contract offer, which the union ratified that same day to avert a strike, according to the union’s Facebook post.
