DETROIT (AP) _ A General Motors Corp. spokesman says the automaker has reached a tentative local agreement with the United
Auto Workers that could end a strike by 2,500 workers at a key assembly plant in Kansas City, Kan.
Spokesman Dan Flores says the two sides reached the deal Tuesday evening. The Fairfax plant builds the hot-selling Chevrolet Malibu
midsize sedan as well as the midsize Saturn Aura.
Workers have been on strike since May 5 over a local contract with rules governing job assignments, overtime and other items.
Flores says it's unclear when workers will return to their job if the contract is ratified.
The Associated Press left a message Tuesday evening seeking comment from UAW spokesman Roger Kerson.
