Peoria Cat Workers Vote Down Contract Offer

(Peoria, IL)  —  UAW workers at Caterpillar facilities in Peoria are going to have to vote again on the company’s latest contract offer.  UAW Local 974 is the only union group to vote down the contract.  No one is saying why.  The rest of Cat’s UAW workers over the weekend approved the plan which includes pay raises, a no strike/no lock out clause, and a severance package for workers at the soon to-be closed Aurora plant.
