OSHKOSH, WI (AP) -

Union workers at the Oshkosh Corp. have voted to reopen contract extension talks with the company to help win a military contract.

WLUK-TV reports union officials say members voted Tuesday to reopen talks.

The current union contract expires in 2016.

Oshkosh Defense says it needs a five-year extension in place in order to compete for a contract to build a military vehicle.

This is the second time this summer union workers have been asked about an extension. No agreement was reached in July.
