Deere strike to continue after 55% of union members vote against new agreement
The John Deere strike will continue after 55 percent of members of the UAW reject a new agreement.
That proposal offered a 10 percent raise after the first year, followed by alternating 3 and 5 percent bumps. An official with John Deere says that the deal was a good one, and they had faith in their employees to accept it.
With the rejection, Deere will activate the next phase of its customer service continuation plan.
Meanwhile, workers say that they are confident in their bargaining position.
