Deere, UAW agree on new 6-year contract

Deere has agreed on a new six-year contract with the United Auto Workers union.

The tractor maker said Saturday the tentative agreement on wages and benefits covering about 10,100 employees would be subject to a vote by its striking workers.

The company would not release details of the deal.

The vast majority of the union’s members rejected a previous tentative deal in early October and went on strike, the first against Deere by the UAW in more than three decades.
