Oshkosh, Wisconsin workers at a plant manufacturing military trucks move closer toward striking as the company pushes an agenda that would see the workers healthcare premiums double and allow for the hire of temporary non-union workers. The company states that their inclusion of an 8% pay raise over the course of 5 years should be enough to satisfy the workers demands. The 3000 workers, skittish over talks of defense spending do not feel that this concession is enough and the two sides appear at loggerheads.


Oshkosh Corp. made $790 million, or $8.69 a share, in profit in fiscal 2010.
