OSHKOSH (WKOW) -- Oshkosh Corporation reaches a tentative contract agreement with the local Auto Workers Union.
With the contract extension, the company says they will have a shot at a large military contract.
Members of the Local 578 vote Sunday on the five-year deal. The extension would take affect after the current contract expires in September 2016. Local union president, Joe Preisler, says the extension will provide stability in Oshkosh for years to come.
Neither side will discuss terms of the deal.
Oshkosh Corporation wanted the extension to nail down its production costs as it enters the final bidding process to build the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle for the military. These vehicles will replace the Army and Marine Corp. Humvees.
