The United Auto Workers (UAW) union and General Motors (GM) have reached a tentative agreement to bring an end to the six-week-long labor disruptions that have affected GM’s operations.
Negotiations between the two parties continued late into the night, with details of the collective bargaining agreement yet to be disclosed. The strike, which involved more than 10,000 GM workers across the country, was initiated after both sides failed to meet a September 14th deadline to reach a new labor agreement.
The UAW-GM agreement is similar to the deal struck between the UAW and Stellantis, which produces brands like Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep.
This development comes as the automotive industry grapples with significant disruptions due to labor actions, affecting the production and financial stability of these major car manufacturers.
