The union has been on strike against the big three automakers since Sept. 15
Ford Motor and United Auto Workers union (UAW) have reached a tentative agreement that would end the strike at Ford, sources with knowledge of the negotiations confirmed to ABC News.
An official announcement could happen as soon as Wednesday night pending approval of UAW leadership, per those same sources.
Spokespersons for both Ford Motor and the union declined to comment on the tentative deal. The deal includes a proposal for wage increases of at least 25% over the term of the deal and improved benefits for union members, according to sources.

This deal would still need to be ratified by a majority of Ford’s 57,000 UAW members.
On Sept. 15, UAW members launched their strike against Ford, General Motors and Stellantis after they failed to reach a new contract agreement for plants in Michigan, Ohio and Missouri.

The union, which represents nearly 150,000 workers, demanded a 40% pay increase combined over the four-year duration of a new contract, as well as a 32-hour workweek at 40-hour pay.
Over the last few weeks, workers from other plants also began strikes, with nearly 45,000 UAW members walking off the job.
The sources did not comment on any negotiations between the UAW and Stellantis and General Motors.
