Strike averted at Allison Transmission in Speedway

Strike averted at Allison Transmission in Speedway

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Local United Auto Workers union members did not go on strike Wednesday morning after reaching a last-minute deal with Allison Transmission in Speedway.

Negotiations between UAW Local 933 and Allison Transmission went past midnight when the collective bargaining agreement was set to expire, but a union representative told News 8 that Allison and the UAW extended the agreement.

Both organizations are working on a more permanent solution.

About 1,700 members of UAW Local 933 were prepared to walk off the job at midnight if a deal couldn’t be reached.

Indianapolis-based Allison Transmission manufactures automatic transmissions and the eGen family of electric hybrids and fully electric e-Axles.
