That national agreement includes several lump sum payouts that UAW workers at all Navistar locations expect to come Thursday. Since 83 percent of members had approved the main contract, Rothenberg said the national contract has been binding since the vote in December.
But Navistar has said all parts of all contracts must be ratified before any changes will take effect. UAW members will not receive payouts on Thursday, even now that the local contract is nearing its close, said Navistar spokeswoman Lyndi McMillan.

“Back in December when we were originally going to ratify the contracts, it was put in there that if the contract was ratified that day in December, we would pay out no later than Jan. 17,” McMillan said.
Instead, the lump sum payout dates will be moved back based on when all parts of the contract are ratified.
