Harley Davidson is in the final stages of deciding whether to restructure the York, PA production facility for greater efficiency or move those operations to another location in the United States. The decision is now down to just two options, stay in York or move to Shelbyville, Kentucky. The company had previously announced 4 potential alternatives to York, but yesterday announced only Shelbyville remained on the list.
Company representatives met this week with Kentucky officials to further explore plans and options. At the same time, Harley-Davidson management said that a joint union-management task force has developed a plan to restructure the York operations that provides a “viable path to competitiveness,” pending the ratification of a new contract that aligns with restructured operations.
A decision is expected by the end of the year.
