Bradford White Corp. and the United Auto Workers Local 1002 recently signed a new 7-year labor agreement. The members of the UAW Local 1002 ratified the agreement by a 3-1 margin. This new long-term security labor agreement will be in effect until August 25, 2014. It will allow for manufacturing flexibility to effectively compete in the global marketplace. A major part of the agreement is that Bradford White and its employees have developed a unified common goal to be the supplier of choice to customers in the wholesale market.
