Kohler Company officials, UAW Local 833 officials meet to discuss contract amid strike
KOHLER — A Kohler Company spokesman tells FOX6 News negotiations between the company and UAW Local 833 workers continue. We’re told Kohler Co. officials and union officials met Thursday, December 10th to discuss a new contract.
The two sides also met last week, according to the Kohler Company spokesman.
On November 15th, members of United Auto Workers Local 833 voted to go on strike.
The major sticking points in contract talks have centered on Kohler Co.’s two-tiered wage system and also on health care.
The striking workers are out on the picket line 24/7 — rotating in six-hour shifts.
It’s unclear at this point when the two sides could meet again.
