DETROIT, Mich. (WTVO) — The United Auto Workers union and automotive manufacturer Stellantis have reached a tentative contract agreement , potentially ending a six-week strike by over 14,000 workers, the Associated Press reported on Saturday.
The agreement follows a template set earlier in the week by Ford, including a 25% wage increase.
The agreement is subject to a vote from the 43,000 union members.
Restarting the Belvidere Assembly Plant is part of Stellantis’ latest offer to the United Auto Workers union, according to a Friday report by Bloomberg.
Stellantis has reportedly offered to restart the plant and build a battery factory for future electric vehicles, Fortune also reported.
Workers are expected to start returning to work as soon as next week.
