In an April 16 press release, Alamo Group said it was notified on April 14, 2024 that the unionized workers at its subsidiary, Gradall Industries LLC, located in New Philadelphia, Ohio, elected to strike after failing to reach a labor agreement.

Gradall Industries manufactures wheeled and crawler telescopic excavators, and the strike does not impact any of Alamo Group's ag equipment manufacturing.

The approximately 200 workers are part of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), District Lodge 54, Local Lodge 1285. Alamo Group employs approximately 4,350 employees, according to its annual report filed with the SEC on Feb. 22, 2024.

"Negotiations are ongoing and the Company is committed to working in good faith with union leaders to reach agreement on the new labor agreement and restore normal operations," the press release said.

An April 15 press release from IAM stated, "Gradall members are seeking higher pay increases and more stable health insurance costs."
