United Auto Workers (UAW) members ratified a labor deal at ZF Chassis Systems in Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Thursday, ending a nearly month-long strike.
“After a month on strike, UAW Local 2083 at ZF at Tuscaloosa, Ala., have ratified a new contract that eliminates wage tiers, and grants more time off, among other wins,” the UAW posted on X, formerly Twitter, on Thursday.
As previously reported, 190 workers at auto parts supplier ZF went on strike last month after voting down a contract from ZF. The plant supplies front axles to a Mercedes-Benz plant located nearby.
ZF had said when the strike was declared that the plant in Tuscaloosa would operate while talks with the union continued, according to a report at Reuters.
A global auto supplier, ZF is based in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It has locations around the world, including in the US.
Requests for further comment from the UAW and ZF were not returned by time of publication.
