After a tie, Youngstown union approves contract

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown union workers re-vote on a new contract after the first vote ended in a tie.

Over a 100 workers at Parker Hannifin voted on the contract on Tuesday.

This time it passed 77 to 46.

The new deal raises wages three percent each year for four years. After 2017, workers will see their healthcare contributions nearly triple.

So what changed the minds of workers to vote this week? "We made several changes to the contract in regards to some jobs the company wanted to combine, eliminate or outsource. We made changes to those jobs. Those jobs remained in the bargaining unit," said Jim Lee with the United Steel Workers.

Parker Hannifin makes hydraulic fluid gear pumps. The company that makes Bobcats is their biggest customer.
