The United Auto Workers (UAW) union announced a tentative agreement with Stellantis on Thursday, ending a six-week strike that had paralyzed the company’s operations in the United States.
UAW President Rory Gamble said the agreement had been reached after lengthy negotiations with the automaker.
“We are pleased with the tentative agreement as it addresses many of the issues we have been fighting for,” he said in a statement.
The strike began on Mar. 17 and involved nearly 50,000 members of the UAW. It was the longest industrial labor action in recent memory.
The details of the agreement were not immediately released and must still be approved by rank-and-file UAW members.
The union has said that the deal includes wage increases, a commitment to jobs and investment in manufacturing facilities, improved safety protocols, and more.
