The six-year tentative agreement covers about 2,900 employees in Dublin, Va.

“Further comment on the proposed agreement is being withheld pending ratification by the members of UAW Local #2069,” Volvo said in a statement. “Ratification meetings are being scheduled by the UAW.”

Workers at the plant went on strike April 19 and returned to work May 3 after a tentative agreement was reached April 30. They then rejected that deal May 17, but remained on the job.
