Harley-Davidson Reaches New Deal with Unions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Union employees at Harley-Davidson's Kansas City plant have approved a new five-year agreement with the
motorcycle maker.

The agreement takes effect tomorrow. It provides annual raises of between 3.5 percent and 4 percent and continues to require no health insurance premiums.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and United Steelworkers represent about 850 employees at Harley-Davidson's Vehicle and Powertrain Operations in Kansas City. The plant makes Dyna, Sportster and VRSC motorcycles.

The Milwaukee-based company last week reported that profits for the period ended July First rose 19 percent to $290 million on $1.6 billion in revenue, driven largely by overseas sales.
