Mack Trucks announced that the company and the United Auto Workers union reached an agreement on the terms of a new four-year agreement that would cover approximately 3,500 employees at six facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida.
In conjunction with the agreement, the UAW has ended its strike against the affected facilities, effective 9 a.m. on October 25.
“The new agreement allows us to continue providing our UAW-represented employees and their families with an attractive package of wages and benefits, while safeguarding the company’s competitiveness and supporting the success of our customers,” said Mack Trucks President Martin Weissburg.
