GM and union reach tentative deal

General Motors and the United Auto Workers reached a tentative agreement at approximately 11:43 p.m. EDT on October 25, 2015.

"The new UAW-GM national agreement is good for employees and the business," said Cathy Clegg, GM North America Manufacturing and Labor Relations vice president. "Working with our UAW partners, we developed constructive solutions that benefit employees and provide flexibility for the company to respond to the needs of the marketplace."

Terms of the four-year agreement are not being shared publicly to allow the International UAW to inform their membership about the agreement and conduct a ratification vote. If ratified, the agreement would cover about 52,600 GM employees in the United States who are represented by the UAW.

GM won’t comment further until the contract is ratified.
