Just after midnight Tuesday, the union announced they were extending negotiations with Ford for 24 hours. The union said at the time that they received a substantive offer from the employer minutes before the deadline, and bargaining is continuing throughout the night.

The tentative agreement was reached late on Tuesday, September 19th.
