The General Motors strike could be ending soon after a tentative agreement with the United Auto Workers reached an agreement on Wednesday.
After weeks of negotiations, officials gathered to approve a tentative deal before rank and file members vote.
The union called for a strike after expressing discontent with GM’s profit-sharing formula, production of vehicles in Mexico, a potential change in health care cost-sharing and pathways for temporary workers.
The Center for Automotive Research Kristin Dziczek says, “Another thing to keep an eye on is what [UAW members] might be doing once they reach a tentative agreement. Will they go back to work immediately or stay out?”
Workers are expected to head back to work after the ratification vote is complete, which will take a couple of weeks.
Both GM’s and UAW’s headquarters are in Detroit.
