AAR Announces Strike at Its Cadillac, Michigan Operation
WOOD DALE, Ill., /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AAR CORP. (NYSE: AIR) announced today that a strike has been called by Local 1433 of the International United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW) at the Company's AAR Mobility Systems Operating unit in Cadillac, Michigan.
The Union called the strike after its membership failed to ratify an agreement reached between AAR Mobility Systems management and the Union negotiating committee, which includes both local and international Union leadership representatives.
"The strike was unexpected as the agreement was unanimously approved by both the Union Local 1433 and international Union leadership representatives," said David P. Storch, President and CEO of AAR CORP. "We remain absolutely committed to maintaining positive relations with our all of our employees. In light of the Union membership's decision, we now need to take steps to ensure our ability to keep the commitments we've made to our customers."
Unless an agreement is reached quickly, the Company anticipates that the strike will have a negative effect on first quarter results but it will recover the sales and earnings over the balance of the year with no long-term loss of business. The facility will continue to operate using salaried and contract employees to enable it to meet its customer commitments.
AAR Mobility Systems manufactures containers, shelters and pallets for military customers and prime contractors. AAR CORP. is the preeminent provider of products and value-added services to the worldwide aerospace/aviation industry. Products and services include proprietary inventory management and logistic support services, encompassing supply, repair and manufacture of spare parts and systems.
