United Steel Workers are set to vote Tuesday on a proposed six-year contract with Caterpillar Inc. The contract would freeze wages and increase health care costs for employees.

The proposed agreement covers about 800 workers in South Milwaukee who, under the current contract, make about $18 to $34 per hour.

Caterpillar acquired the South Milwaukee plant in 2011 when it purchased Bucyrus International Inc., a mining equipment maker, for $8.8 billion.
