The plant builds Ford's Super Duty line of pickups.

After extensive negotiations, UAW Local 862, representing almost 9,000 workers at Ford's Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville, announced Feb. 21 it successfully brokered a tentative local agreement with the automaker.

Workers at Ford’s most profitable plant were set to walk off the job at 12:01 a.m. Feb 23 over local issues related to skilled trades, health and safety, and ergonomics. The tentative deal addresses these and other core issues of concern to autoworkers at the plant, the UAW said in a press release.

The UAW said there are dozens of remaining open local agreements across the Big Three automakers. National contracts were ratified last fall after the union’s Stand Up Strike secured record contracts.
