Mercury, union aim to finalize negotiations by Monday

Publish date:

Mercury Marine and the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers continued negotiations this morning, following a six-hour session Wednesday, company officials say.

The sessions are expected to keep the talks on schedule to meet the goal of finalizing negotiations by Monday.

Mercury is attempting to decrease underutilization of its facilities, and consolidating its operations in Fond du Lac, Wis., or Stillwater, Okla., is one possibility.

A decision by Mercury regarding its next step would be determined in part by the union's response to the tentative agreement, the company says.
