Over 10,000 John Deere workers strike over ‘years’ of poor treatment


Workers wage biggest private sector strike in the US for two years, saying they were forced to do overtime consistently while company made record profits

Over 10,000 production and warehouse workers at fourteen John Deere plants in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, and Georgia walked off the job at midnight on 14 October.

The workers, represented by nine locals with the United Auto Workers, voted 99% in favor of a strike authorization in September after receiving the initial six-year contract proposal from John Deere.
