Oshkosh Victim of its Own Success in Labor Relations?

Oshkosh (OSK) the Wisconsin based manufacturer of heavy vehicles including firetrucks, ambulances and trucks for the military has had a rough time of it with the worldwide global economic problems. Demand for their civil products has fallen considerably causing the company in 2009 to lose over a billion dollars. Since then two major military contracts have helped the company turn a profit so far this year.

Oskosh won a contract to provide new, lighter Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) for use in Afghanistan. The MRAP proved critical in Iraq as well for defending troops as the moved around the country. The MRAP vehicles purchased by the U.S. military and its Allies tended to be very large and heavy and tended to stay on roads. In Afghanistan the rougher, less developed country side led to the demand for the MRAP-ATV designed to be more maneuverable. Oshkosh won a competitive contest held by the Defense Department and so far has booked over four billion dollars of work related to their M-ATV product line.

Oshkosh was also able to win the Army’s contract to build their standard truck and trailer from BAE Systems (BAE:LSE). The Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) has been in production for almost twenty years for the U.S. military. The Army awarded a contract in 2008 to Oshkosh to keep building the same design at their factories. The Army will be buying thousands of the vehicles to rebuild stocks and replace those lost in Iraq and Afghanistan and Oshkosh will profit from that.

The fact that the company has got back on its feet is not lost on its workforce. Yesterday they through their union, United Auto Workers Local 578, rejected the company’s offer to extend an existing contract another year. The dispute was not about pay and benefits but concerns among the workers as how the company treats issues with “seniority, layoff and recall rights, family and medical leave rights, and overtime”.

Unlike many employers during economic downturns who can demand concessions from their workforce to help keep up the number employed Oshkosh is facing the opposite situation. Due mainly to the two military orders the company is reopening plants and hiring workers many of whom are former employees. Once the economy does start to get back on its feet there may be even more demand from the company to hire.

Of course many defense contracts have a definitive end or as Oshkosh demonstrates may be moved to another supplier. Oshkosh’s workforce may be recognizing that in five or ten years they could be in the same situation as BAE’s workers in Sealy, TX. A contract that contains protections for seniority, layoffs and other work rules will certainly be more protective of their long term employment then one that gives them a decent rise in wages or benefits. A good paying job is only as good as long as you have it.

U.S. Army Selects Raytheon for Next-Generation Excalibur Ib Program — Press Release

U.S. Army Selects Raytheon for Next-Generation Excalibur Ib Program

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Raytheon Company (NYSE:RTN) has won the competition for the next phase of Excalibur Ib and has been awarded a $23 million U.S. Army contract to finalize the next-generation 155 mm precision-guided projectile’s design. Delivery of the Excalibur Ib rounds is projected to occur in 2012.

Based on the combat-proven Excalibur Ia, Excalibur Ib uses GPS technology to provide a first round, fire-for-effect, precision capability that limits collateral damage. Whether “danger close” or across a valley, Excalibur projectiles give warfighters life-saving options.

“Raytheon’s Excalibur Ib design will give our warfighters a pinpoint precision capability that will limit collateral damage while protecting the brigade combat teams,” said Dr. Taylor Lawrence, Raytheon Missile Systems president. “Excalibur Ib is an affordable, reliable solution to the U.S. Army’s need for precision artillery fire.”

The Excalibur Ib program met the U.S. Army’s cost reduction goals and increased its reliability by using fewer parts and simpler manufacturing.

“With more than 100 successful test flights during its development, Raytheon’s Excalibur Ib team demonstrated the unwavering reliability and robust capability of its design,” said Jim Riley, Raytheon’s vice president of Land Combat.

Raytheon Company, with 2009 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 88 years, Raytheon provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Waltham, Mass., Raytheon employs 75,000 people worldwide.

Despite Gate’s Proposals SETA Contracts Still Being Awarded

Over the last two years the U.S. Defense Department has been reviewing how it handles its support contractors. These Scientific, Engineering, Technical and Analytical (SETA) contractors work side-by-side with government employees and military in acquisition and management offices to aid them in carrying out their work. These contractors have grown in size as part of the workforce and in the amount of money they receive often on time and material contracts where they are paid for the work they do by the hour rather then fixed price.

In 2009 the Department began to “insource” these contract jobs where they were converted to civil service positions. This was driven by the need to increase the size of the government’s acquisition workforce and also to counteract claims that these contractors were doing “inherently government” work that should be done by an official. Insourcing has seen the elimination of several thousand contractor jobs. There have been complaints that insourcing has not necessarily been done fairly with the government choosing positions based on cost estimates rather then their real role. The loss of a contractor position means a company loses revenue and often an employee. Sometimes whole contracts have been insourced leading to serious problems for smaller companies.

Two weeks ago Secretary Gates’ announced a new initiative that rather then just insourcing jobs he plans to cut thirty percent of the contracts over the next three years. He has realized that converting the slots to government may not be saving money in the long run which is his goal and has decided to minimize future conversions. This has roused the ire of the Unions who represent Federal workers who fell that there should be more insourcing.

Despite these moves the government still relies on SETA contracts and continues to announce contracts for them.

In the middle of this month the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) awarded Tetra Tech (TTEK) a support contract through their Missile Defense Agency Engineering and Support Services (MiDAESS) vehicle. This contract if all options are exercised is worth $270 million. Like many large commands that award these kind of contracts MDA set up an omnibus contract in this case MiDAESS that allows qualified companies to bid on tasks that minimize the source selection process.

Last week General Dynamics (GD) won an IT support contract from the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. This is an over $60 million contract to provide help-desk and network support for the organization. IT services are one of the areas that were being considered to insource as they are often contract provided mainly due to the flexibility and pay structure of contractors compared to government. The government has always had a hard time fitting IT into the GS pay scale due to the compensation for these skilled and in-demand personnel.

Until the Defense Department can decide on what its workforce balance should be and what tasks are needed then these kind of contract awards will continue. Gates’ plans to reduce may see smaller contracts but at the same time a smaller contract will provide less support to the government. It may be that a return to the Nineties of “doing more with less” may be happening again as the defense budget restructures to reflect the ending of operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

The U.S. Navy and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) have been developing a ship based anti-missile system for almost twenty years. The current system now in use is based on the Navy’s AEGIS system originally designed to counter aircraft, anti-ship missiles and helicopters. AEGIS is a system of systems that includes radars, command and control systems and variants of the STANDARD Missile now made by Raytheon (RTN). The SM-3 is the version designed to counter the ballistic missile threat equipped with a kinetic warhead.

MDA has announced that it will release three separate contracts to develop proposals for a new missile for this role to be based on Navy ships and integrated with the AEGIS system. Lockheed Martin (LMT) has said that they intend to bid with the goal of winning one of the contracts. The initial value of the contracts will be $45 million. Eventually the MDA will choose one or more of the proposals for further development ultimately leading to a new missile for this mission.

Several Navy cruisers and destroyers have had the system installed and Raytheon has produced quite a few of the SM-3 missiles for use by these ships.

Raytheon and Lockheed Martin the prime contractors for the current missile and radar have been making incremental improvements to the AEGIS based missile defense system over the last several years. It has had several successful tests and in early 2008 the system was used to destroy a U.S. satellite that was falling to earth.

The new missile will presumably have improved performance and the ability to engage more stressing targets then the current one. The MDA is also exploring making a land based version of the AEGIS BMD system and the new missile may be optimized to support that role as well as the ship board one.

The path that MDA is taking with the multiple first round and then further development indicate that it will be several years before the new interceptor is developed and fielded. This means that the current fleet equipped with the SM-3 will remain the sea based defense against theater ballistic missiles.
