Workers at General Motors’ CAMI plant in Ingersoll have accepted a tentative agreement, ending a four-week long strike.

UNIFOR Local 88 president Dan Borthwhick says they did not achieve their main goal of getting GM to designate CAMI as the lead production facility for the Chevy Equinox.

But he says they did achieve job security improvements.

The contract proposal was hammered out last week.

The automaker threatened last week to shift more production to Mexico if a settlement wasn’t reached swiftly and the two sides agreed to a deal on Friday.

Union officials expect the striking workers to start returning to the job Monday night.
