A strike at a Ford truck plant in Louisville, Kentucky, has been averted following an agreement between UAW Local 62 and the automaker.

The deal was reached as nearly 9,000 workers at Ford’s highly profitable plant, known for producing SUVs and pickups, stood on the brink of striking.

The agreement reached between the Union and Ford specifically targets “local issues” such as skilled trades, ergonomics, and health and safety, according to the UAW. This settlement differs from the broader national contracts negotiated with major automakers, which remain ongoing for Stellantis, General Motors, and Ford. Last year, Ford experienced a significant financial setback, losing $1.7 billion in profits due to a six-week strike by the UAW.

Ford’s Louisville facility, one of two in the state, is a key production site for F-Series pickup trucks, Ford Expeditions, and Lincoln Navigator SUVs.
