On Monday 1880 Harley Wisconsin manufacturing workers received a letter from their Union President. In it, he explains that they have want to keep their jobs, they have only one chance: to vote on September 13th, 2010 to approve the new Harley-Davidson contract.
He warns that if not “Harley-Davidson Board of Directors can vote themselves on whether to allocate monies to Wisconsin Operations or to another state.” Union negotiations are still open and ongoing but Harley-Davidson confirms they want to keep mid-September as the deadline to decide the future location of actual Wisconsin manufacturing operations. It is rumored that Kansas City or York, PA where Harley-Davidson has plants could be the new location if Wisconsin workers fail to approve the new contract. In any case, corporate headquarters, product development center, and museum will remain in Milwaukee
