At noon on May 2, 2022 over 1,000 members of the United Auto Workers went on strike at CNHi in Racine, Wisconsin and Burlington, Iowa. Over 600 members of UAW Local 180 work at CNHi in Racine. Around 400 UAW Local 807 workers work at CNHi in Burlington, Iowa. CNHi is one of the world’s largest agricultural and construction equipment makers. UAW workers at CNHi produce equipment that feeds, builds, and powers America. UAW workers are on strike for the ability to earn a decent living, retire with dignity, and establish fair work rules.

“The Wisconsin labor movement proudly stands in solidarity with our sisters and brothers of the UAW Local 180 and UAW Local 807 on strike at CNHi in Racine, Wisconsin and Burlington, Iowa,” said Stephanie Bloomingdale, President of the Wisconsin AFL-CIO. “UAW members are holding the line to strengthen our American middle class by standing together for a good union contract that establishes fair work rules with good wages and the ability to retire with dignity. We send strength and solidarity to the striking workers and urge CNHi to negotiate in good faith to reach a mutually agreeable contract.”
