Milwaukee-based Briggs & Stratton has signed a new three-year contract with members of the United Steelworkers Local 2-232 who work at the company’s Wauwatosa, Wis., manufacturing facility, according to the Journal-Sentinel.
Members of the union voted 211-77 to accept the deal, which included a signing bonus and a 2% annual raise over the next three years, but also increased the amount employees pay into their health benefits and allowed the company to hire temporary workers at the facility as it sees fit.
While company officials see the deal as a “win-win,” union leadership said employees lost ground financially, according to the article.
