A seven-week strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union against truck and engine maker Navistar International, based in Warrenville, ended in December.
The union’s contract expired on Oct. 1, but employees worked through Oct. 23 before walking out on the company’s Melrose Park and Indianapolis engine plants, plus its medium-truck plant in Springfield, OH.
Navistar survived the stoppage by shifting production to nonunion plants, a move the UAW unsuccessfully challenged. At the more critical Melrose Park facility, Navistar continued production by using salaried andemployees.
The UAW said its focus was on job security, and that the agreement included a moratorium on the outsourcing of union jobs.
