Well, i heard today that Harley is at it again to reduce cost. Here in PA at the York assembly plant, a few months back, they came in and told the union and employees that they cost to much, and if they didnt take pay cuts and reduce benefits, they were shutting th plant and sending the jobs to KC. When the union reduced cost, Harley came back agin and said it wasnt enough. They wanted "temp workers" who would not be part of the union, or have benefits, and have minimal pay. Now, they are doing the sme to KC.. Article is below. My opinon, Union busting, and corporate greed. Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Inc. needs its Kansas City manufacturing operations to become more cost-effective or it will move them to York County, the company said this week. Harley makes engines and transmissions in its home state of Wisconsin and assembles its motorcycles in Kansas City and Springettsbury Township, where it has its largest manufacturing site. There are “significant cost, efficiency and production flexibility gaps in the Kansas City operations,” according to a statement late Thursday from Harley spokesman Bob Klein. The motorcycle maker told midstate workers in 2009 it might move their jobs elsewhere to save costs but decided against relocation. Harley instead is closing one of its two local plants, cutting hundreds of jobs and making other structural changes after members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Local 175 ratified a contract with concessions. Harley made similar statements to Wisconsin operations earlier this year. The company expects to make a final decision in Kansas City in the first quarter of 2011, Klein said.
