UAW reaches tentative agreement with Sakthi Automotive, cancels strike

Jun 24, 2016

The United Auto Workers says it's reached a tentative agreement with a Detroit auto supplier.

Earlier this week, the UAW announced it had authorized a strike at Sakthi Automotive Group.

The India-based company has two plants with more than 200 employees in Detroit.

UAW leaders accused Sakthi of a number of labor law violations, including refusing to provide information for collective bargaining, and firing unionized workers.

The UAW has called off the strike, and Sakthi workers are set to vote on the agreement Sunday.
