The United Auto Workers (UAW) ended their strike against Chrysler approximately six hours after it began, with negotiators reaching a tentative contract agreement that still must be ratified by the rank-and-file. A UAW statement said that workers were instructed to report to their next available shift. Now that talks are completed with Chrysler, the union will next begin negotiations with Ford Motor Company, which industry sources say will be expected to match the terms of the agreements with Chrysler and General Motors, with whom the UAW settled two weeks ago.
