“This tentative deal delivers significant investment, new products, new jobs, and job security, achieving our union’s key bargaining priorities during these challenging times.”
A ratification vote is scheduled for Monday. If the deal is ratified work will begin immediately to start transforming the plant to build electric vehicles.
