TOMAHAWK, Wis. (AP) — Harley-Davidson Inc. is proposing to cut more than quarter of its jobs at its motorcycle parts and accessories factories in Tomahawk.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that employees got their first look on Wednesday at the proposed labor contract containing the cuts.
On Monday, 325 employees are scheduled to vote on the seven-year deal. That includes 50 workers now on lay off.
Under the terms of the new deal, there would be a wage freeze and about 75 of 275 current jobs would be cut. Temporary workers would be used during periods of high seasonal demand.
Harley-Davidson is one of the largest employers in Tomahawk.
