Maytag Corp. and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (I.A.M.) Local 554 jointly announced on June 11 that union members ratified a new 4-year contract at the Herrin, IL, U.S. laundry plant.

Maytag's current 5-year labor agreement with the I.A.M. Local 554 would have expired on June 12. The plant manufactures top-load washers and certain dryer models.

"We want to thank the I.A.M. Local 554 leadership and the Herrin union employees for their willingness to work together to reach this new labor agreement," said Mark Krivoruchka, Maytag's senior vice president of Human Resources. "The cooperative attitude displayed at Herrin should allow Maytag to remain competitive in our challenging global marketplace and enable Herrin to become the main facility for our vertical-axis, top-load washer production."

Wages, health care, and other benefits were addressed in the new contract. Maytag said details about the contract are not being released.
