UAW Strike Authorization in CNH Negotiations

Lessiter Media reports UAW Local 180 and 807 members passed a strike authorization earlier this month in the union’s ongoing negotiations with CNH Industrial. UAW Local 807 posted on Facebook that 97.4% of its members voted for the strike. A representative for UAW Local 180 confirmed in a phone interview with Ag Equipment Intelligence that the local’s members had voted in favor of strike authorization but did not disclose the voting results.

The vote does not call a strike, but instead gives the union the ability to call a strike on the workers’ behalf should they feel it necessary.

The union’s contract covering Case IH workers will expire on April 30, 2022. s
