MILWAUKEE (WRN) - It seems to be getting more likely that Harley-Davidson will not move its York Pennsylvania motorcycle plant to Kentucky.
Under a tentative contract agreement, the Milwaukee firm promises to stop its effort to relocate its main assembly facility. The union there is scheduled to vote on the contract December 2nd. Union negotiator Tom Santone tells the York Dispatch the new pact should contain enough cost savings to keep the plant from moving.
Thursday Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear said the likelihood of getting the Harley plant was, “significantly diminished.” Harley officials in Milwaukee have not commented on the latest developments.
