WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) — Harley-Davidson workers are gathering Tuesday to learn details of a proposed contract which includes concessions the company says will keep jobs in Wisconsin.
The motorcycle maker and union leaders have reached agreement on the deal to save more than 1,300 manufacturing jobs in Milwaukee and Tomahawk.
Harley aims to cut $54 million a year in production costs and wants a workforce that can quickly respond to seasonal demands and economic changes that affect production.
Union members met with leadership at the Waukesha Expo Center. According to WTMJ-TV, the union will vote on the proposal next Monday.
