DUBLIN, Va. (AP) — Union workers have reached a tentative agreement with Volvo Trucks North America in a strike that has halted production at a factory in Dublin, Virginia.
If ratified, the agreement would end the strike of 2,600 United Auto Workers members that began on February 1.
Local UAW President General Holiefield announced the tentative agreement in a news release Tuesday night. No details of the agreement are being released.
The plant produces all Volvo trucks sold in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Management of the plant owned by the Swedish truckmaker AB Volvo announced in December that it would lay off up to 650 workers early this year.
