QUINCY, Ill.—United Steelworkers locals at Titan International Inc. plants in Des Moines, Iowa, Bryan, Ohio, and Freeport, Ill., have delayed voting on a proposed new labor contract until March 15, according to Titan.
Originally scheduled for a vote March 4, voting on the proposed contract was pushed back to March 15 because of weather and schedule considerations, Titan said in a press release. The union has scheduled informational meetings next week at two of the plants, with the third factory will hold meetings the following week.
Titan and the union have been negotiating over a new collective bargaining agreement since September last year, Titan Chairman Maurice Taylor Jr. told financial analysts in a conference call Feb. 26. Titan believes this proposed contract "is fair to our employees and the company."
