UAW Workers’ Strike at CNH Industrial Enters a Second Week

May 9, 2022
Over 1,000 workers at the agriculture equipment company began striking May 2.

Just over a thousand UAW-represented workers at CNH Industrial returned to picket lines today as their strike of the agricultural and construction equipment manufacturer enters its second week.

The strike affects three CNHi locations: Racine and Mount Pleasant in Wisconsin and Burlington, Iowa.

UAW Local 180, which represents the strikers, published the results of the April 10 vote to strike in a document on its Facebook page. According to that page, 98.4% of members voted in favor of striking.

The strike echoes last year’s UAW strike of Deere & Co., which lasted over a month and ended with employees receiving 10% raises and improved benefits.

UAW Vice President and Agricultural Implement Department director Chuck Browning, in a statement, said the striking members were seeking dignified retirement, fair work rules, and “a decent living.”

“We stay committed to bargaining until our members’ goals are achieved,” he added.

In a statement to local news outlet CBS 58, a CNHi spokesperson said the company is “disappointed” in the UAW’s decision to call a strike and insisted the company “will continue to negotiate in good faith.”
