After a seven week strike UAW workers will be returning to their posts at International Truck and Engine Corporation plants. UAW members originally began their strike on October 23rd citing unfair labor practices as their basis. However, International has remained relatively unaffected by the strike and has continued to meet its delivery schedules through carefully restructured organization. That has to have been a factor in its negotiations with the UAW as it displays a lack of necessity of the union's service. Rather than have no company to return to, the majority of UAW members have voted to ratify the contract on the table. It has also dropped the unfair labor practice charges. The agreement allows for operational flexibility and cost improvement, one specific being the ability to close a facility to in order meet business needs. The contract will be valid through Oct. 1, 2010.
