UAW, Daimler Truck reach tentative deal – Truck News

The UAW (United Auto Workers) has reached a tentative agreement with Daimler Truck ahead of the contract’s expiration on April 26, after mounting a campaign and strike threat against the manufacturer.  

The four-year agreement delivers economic gains for 7,300 workers, including raises of more than 25%, the end of wage tiers, and the introduction profit-sharing and cost-of-living (COLA) for the first time since Daimler workers first organized with the UAW, according to a news release.

“Our lowest paid workers at Thomas Built Bus will see raises of over $8 an hour. Some TBB skilled trades members will get an over $17 an hour raise. That’s an over 60% raise,” UAW president Shawn Fain said.
