General Motors and the United Auto Workers union have reached a tentative agreement, bringing the two-day strike of 73,000 workers to an end. Under the new deal, UAW members will receive part of a comprehensive health care trust fund and guaranteed jobs in North America. UAW President Ron Gettelfinger revealed workers are likely to return to their jobs today but didn’t mention if Ford or Chrysler are next in line for similar negotiations.

Though final details are yet to be released, a source close to the deal has revealed to Automotive News that the agreement also includes a provision that would allow temporary employees to be made permanent starting at their current wage of $18 per hour, while Veteran workers would earn up to $28 per hour.

UAW officials are confident the deal will ensure that GM will employ as many employees in four years time as it does today and possibly even more based on the projected cost savings to GM.
