Harley-Davidson employees stage protests days before their union contract expires

MENOMONMEE FALLS, WI – As a 7-year union contract expires Monday, concerns are growing for Harley-Davidson workers at the Menomonee Falls manufacturing plant.

Workers are rallying together this week, taking their unpaid lunch break to demonstrate and ask the company to bargain in good faith.

“The union contract is expiring April 1,” a long-time employee told WTMJ. “We have no offer and as of right now we have no vote date. They’re also requesting anybody of retiring age to inform them by March 29.”

Other workers are likely to stay on as negotiations play out, but older employees are worried they’ll have to take a gamble to either to protect retirement benefits, or risk accepting the unknown contract terms.
