Our negotiations team has been working hard the past several months to reach an agreement with the UAW. Here is a snapshot of Tammie, George and I from Springfield working through the details. As negotiations continue, we remain committed to reaching an agreement that helps us competitively run our plant.

We’ve had multiple productive and relevant conversations with the UAW this week. The bargaining process is ongoing and we remain optimistic that we will reach an agreement that benefits both parties.

Today’s Springfield News-Sun article shows how we are focusing on lean manufacturing. Thanks to Matt for visiting the plant and talking with us about the investments we’ve made. I’m proud of our team and the progress we’ve made over the past five years.

We continue to work with the UAW to move the bargaining process forward, so we can be competitive and keep making our trucks in the U.S. All management proposals, other than those with economic impact, are now on the table.

Nice meeting with Mike McDorman, president of the Springfield Chamber of Commerce, yesterday. Proud to continue investing in the Springfield community. We have provided jobs in Springfield since 1902 when International Harvester was created!

Manufacturing in the U.S. is evolving, and Navistar also needs to evolve to meet our customer’s demands, be competitive in our industry and stay current with other manufacturers including those in the automobile industry.

Good opening week for labor negotiations. Initial proposals from the UAW have been shared with us. We are now considering their proposals, along with preparing management initiatives to be shared over the coming weeks that will help us reach a competitive agreement. Looking forward to seeing our UAW colleagues again on Monday.
