Striking union members agreed to new contract terms that will bring them back to work at Mack Trucks facilities in three states, the OEM and United Auto Workers announced Wednesday night.
The new five-year collective bargaining agreement affects about 3,900 employees working at Mack facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Florida. In a post on X, UAW said that 93% of its membership voted to end the 39-day strike.
“The new agreement guarantees significant wage growth and delivers excellent benefits for our employees and their families,” said Mack President Stephen Roy. “At the same time, it will safeguard our competitiveness and allow us to continue making the necessary investments in our people, plants, and products.”
Details of the new agreement were not released by either side. The union rejected a 19% pay increase in October, including a $3,500 ratification bonus, improved retirement benefits, and different seniority thresholds.
In late October, Mack said it offered an average five-year wage increase of 36% and an average immediate wage increase of nearly 15% for all covered employees.
