Uaw Agreement

01 May 2008

Caterpillar has reached a new six—year pay agreement with the United Auto Workers (UAW) Union, which represents more than 9000 of its US employees. UAW members had rejected two previous offers from Caterpillar, and overall the negotiation process has taken almost a year. However, this is an improvement on the previous contract, which took 6½ years to agree.
