General Motors and UAW Reach Tentative Deal Aimed at Ending Strike

HeadlineOct 17, 2019

Tens of thousands of General Motors workers are celebrating after the United Auto Workers and the auto manufacturing giant reached a tentative contract deal that could end the longest strike at GM in a half-century. The agreement would include wage increases, improvements to the health insurance plan and a path to full-time work for temporary workers. The announcement came after President Trump called the UAW president on Wednesday night. The workers will remain on strike for at least a few more days as the union decides whether to formally approve the agreement.
