Oshkosh Corp., union fail to reach contract extension by desired date

by

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Oshkosh Corporation and a major workers union were unable to reach a desired end of July deadline to get a contract extension. 

The military vehicle maker is seeking a five-year contract extension with the United Auto Workers Local 578.  Oshkosh made the request in mid-June to “provide bid cost certainty” to gain a competitive edge in bidding on a $13 billion contract.

The current contract expires after September 2016. 

Oshkosh Corp. is looking for possible changes in healthcare, terms of layoffs and adding new entry level positions.

Oshkosh says it will still bid for the new military contract despite not reaching a contract extension with its union.
