Striking John Deere Workers Win Wage and Pension Increases in Tentative Contract

HeadlineNov 02, 2021

Back in the United States, some 10,000 John Deere workers vote today on a tentative contract that could end the strike they began on October 14. If approved, the agreement would bring the unionized workers an immediate 10% raise, plus 5% raises in the contract’s third and fifth years. The deal would also improve on employee pension plans and would pay workers an $8,500 signing bonus. It’s a significant improvement from John Deere’s final offer before workers went out on strike.
