Safety and quality remain pillars of the production processes that Allison Transmission’s propulsion system are known for. To continue to be able to perform this work well, we must work together to simplify some of the current and complex processes within the CBA. By simplifying some of these processes, we believe that we can enable improvements in employee retention, balance employee movement and better balance overtime. To avoid adding cost and risk to our customers, we want to address current complexities by focusing our trades on value-add work that aids in manufacturing transmissions and focusing on completing work where our experience best lies. We want to simplify
complex and cumbersome processes within the CBA related to areas such as overtime solicitation, attendance policy, shift premium, employee movement, contracting and outsourcing, tiered wages, lines of demarcation,
and wage progressions. This will help improve safety, quality and productivity.
