DETROIT — The UAW has reached a tentative agreement with GM to end the worker strike that lasted for more than 30 days.

As detailed by WXYZ in Detroit, the agreement will not allow the GM plant in Lordstown to reopen, but the overall package from the company is valued at $9 billion. Read the full agreement contract here.
