Oshkosh Defense union workers, leaders press on with fight to build USPS delivery vehicle in Oshkosh

OSHKOSH – Oshkosh Defense union workers, their families and community supporters on Saturday vowed to keep pressure on the company to reverse course and build the new U.S. Postal Service vehicle in northeastern Wisconsin.

United Auto Workers Local 578 leaders joined representatives from United Auto Workers regional and national organizations, the Wisconsin AFL-CIO and the American Postal Workers Union 178 to rally support for the 1,600 Local 578 members who live in a 14-county area that stretches from Oshkosh to Marinette, Door and Waukesha counties.

Local, state and national union leaders have been trying to wrestle back the work of building up to 165,000 new mail delivery trucks since June, when the company said its Oshkosh Defense division would build the next-generation delivery vehicle, or NGDV, in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
