UAW reaches deal with General Motors that ends strikes against Detroit automakers pending votes

DETROIT, MI (AP)— The United Auto Workers union says it reached a tentative contract with General Motors, the last of the Detroit Three automakers to agree to a deal.

Under the deal reached early Monday, workers at all three companies will return to the job pending votes on whether to ratify the contracts, which will take place over the next two weeks.

The GM deal follows tentative agreements union negotiators reached with Ford on Wednesday and Jeep-maker Stellantis on Saturday.

The union’s targeted strikes against the companies began on Sept. 15. The main provisions of the deals are largely the same at all three automakers, but there are small differences.
