US Navy and Bath Iron Works agreed on terms

After the negotiations, the US Navy reached an agreement with Bath Iron Works for shipbuilding over a new pact

US Navy and Bath Iron Works agreed on terms

The US Navy shipbuilders reached an agreement with Bath Iron Works. The US Navy - Bath Iron Works pact, will cover a three-year period and is intended to prevent a strike similar to the one experienced in 2020. As a result of the previous work slowdown, the planned deadlines for the delivery of ships to the navy were exceeded and a delay occurred.

Maine-based Bath Iron Works announced the raised rates and improvements that employees will receive on a yearly basis in the agreement. With over 70% support, online research shows workers approve of the terms the union provides. Previous negotiations had a very different atmosphere from this peaceful environment, and both sides are making efforts to prevent the return of subcontracting conditions that triggered the 63-day strike in the middle of the pandemic.

The company stated that the shipyard had already been more than six months behind its pre-strike schedule. Workers have been trying to get improvements in conditions since then.

Bath Iron Works, an organization of the American General Dynamics NASSCO (National Steel and Shipbuilding Company), is a well-known actor with its commercial production capacity as well as operating the largest shipyards producing for the navy. It is known that especially guided missile destroyers they make are of great importance to the defense industry. The company is also an influential employer in the economy of the state of Maine with 6,700 employees.
