The United Auto Workers union said Saturday it has reached a tentative agreement with Stellantis, more than 40 days after it launched a strike against the big three automakers.
The development comes days after the UAW and Ford reached a tentative agreement.
“Once again, we have achieved what just weeks ago we were told was impossible,” UAW President Shawn Fain said in a statement.
According to the UAW, the tentative agreement includes 25% in base wage increases through April 2028 and will raise the starting wage to more than $30 an hour compounded with estimated cost-of-living allowances.
The UAW said its Stellantis members will return to work while the agreement goes through the ratification process.
On Sept. 15, UAW members launched their strike against Ford, Stellantis and General Motors after they failed to reach a new contract agreement for plants in Michigan, Ohio and Missouri.
The so-called stand-up strike is still ongoing at GM, the UAW said.
