DETROIT (AP) -- A General Motors Corp. spokesman says the company has reached a tentative agreement with one of five United Auto Workers locals that had threatened to go on strike.
Spokesman Dan Flores says the deal with UAW Local 1005 at a stamping plant in Parma, Ohio, was reached Tuesday night.
The local was among five that had warned GM that they could strike if local operating agreements are not reached.
A message was left for local President Tito Boneta.
Flores said local agreements cover work rules and plant operations.
Locals at plants in Arlington, Texas; Parma; Delta Township near Lansing; Warren and Flint, have sent the company notices giving it five days to work out issues in bargaining. If progress isn't made, the locals can issue a notice of intent to strike in another five days.
