A seven-week strike by United Auto Workers (UAW) against Warrenville, IL-based truck and engine maker Navistar International Inc. ended in December. The union’s contract expired on Oct. 1, but employees worked through Oct. 23 before walking out on the company’s engine plants in Illinois and Indianapolis, plus its medium-truck plant in Ohio.
Navistar survived the stoppage by shifting production to nonunion plants, a move the UAW unsuccessfully challenged. At one 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.
