  • EARLIER: Check out details of Harley-Davidson's contract.

     

     We now may have a clue what caused Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to issue his surprising and disappointing statement Thursday about Shelby County’s recruitment of the Harley-Davidson plant.

  • EARLIER: Harley workers overwhelmingly approve contract

    Shelby County may be down to that last strike in its bid to get Harley-Davidson to move its largest production plant here.

    Union workers in York, Pa., voted overwhelmingly Wednesday in favor of the contract the company had offered about two weeks ago.

    All but 193 of the 1,780 who voted -- 89 percent -- were in favor of the new 7-year deal, which would eliminate about half their jobs and give the company much broader control of the way the plant operates.
