Mercury: Some union issues resolved today

Negotiations between representatives of Mercury Marine and its hourly union employees — a key component as Mercury decides whether to consolidate all or part of its operations in Fond du Lac or Stillwater, Okla. — are expected to continue today.

Company officials said some issues were resolved Wednesday.

Mercury Marine officials have presented wage and benefit proposals to the leadership of the International Association of Machinists (IAM) and Aerospace Workers Local 1947.
The two sides have been meeting at Ramada Plaza Hotel.

The company is seeking changes in three areas: workforce flexibility, benefits and wages.

Further discussions are planned Thursday and Friday, if needed. Negotiations are scheduled to conclude Monday. If an agreement is reached, a vote by union members is expected within two weeks.
