Oct. 2 Bargaining update

The parties have reached a tentative agreement on the terms of a new five-year agreement.

The tentative agreement would deliver significantly increased wages and continue first-class benefits for Mack employees and their families. At the same time, it would allow the company to successfully compete in the market; invest in our people, plants and products; and be a sustainable employer.

The agreement must now be ratified by UAW members. Ratification meetings will be scheduled by the UAW.

We will soon summarize the tentative agreement on this site for your review.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I work in Hagerstown. We build and ship more than double the amount of engines and transmissions to NRV. Our shirts, jackets, postings etc., all say Volvo. The main entrance, all the signs, say Volvo. Mack has a very small footprint here. I hear that we go by Mack's income for are contract. Our contract books all say Mack and this website all says Mack. Doesn't Volvo contribute something?

A: Hagerstown has been a Volvo Group facility for more than two decades, but we’ve been building Mack powertrains there since 1961, so the Mack legacy is strong. The Mack contracts were in existence before Volvo acquired Mack, and the company and UAW agreed to continue bargaining under that framework. The Volvo Group continues to make major investments in Mack people, plants, and products, as it has for more than twenty years.

Q: Why do we hire people without testing mechanical adaptability??

A: Basic requirements vary by position. While mechanical ability and/or experience is helpful in some positions, it’s not always required, and is sometimes difficult to find, so we provide training opportunities for new employees.

Q: Will UAW positions be created in the Vehicle Propulsion Lab?

A: The parties are currently in negotiations and discussions surrounding this and other important issues. We will provide additional updates when they are available.
