UAW To Announce Contract Vote Today

(Peoria, IL)  —  We could know by the end of the day if Caterpillar workers are on-board with the company’s latest contract. Thousands of UAW members voted yesterday on Cat’s offer. The tentative contract offers raises aimed at evening-out the two-tiered pay scale at some facilities. But reports also say the contract would allow Cat to close its Aurora plant and move some of the jobs to Decatur.
