WAUKESHA, Wis. — Harley-Davidson workers in Wisconsin have approved a labor contract that included a number of steep concessions after the company threatened to move hundreds of production jobs out of the state.
The proposed seven-year deal, approved Monday, will freeze their pay and still slash some jobs.
Harley-Davidson executives had said they would move production out of Wisconsin if the contract was rejected. That would have eliminated about 1,350 jobs.
