General Motors employees and the United Auto Workers union have come to a tentative deal that could end a monthlong strike, The Associated Press reported on Wednesday.

The particulars of the deal have yet to be released, though the four-year contract hammered out by bargainers for both sides is expected to include pay raises, lump sum payments to employees and a stated obligation that GM manufactures new vehicles in U.S. factories, according to the AP.

The strike is unlikely to end until union committees vote, which is expected to take a few days.

Workers have been striking since Sept. 16, demanding more revenue sharing, job security and a path to permanent jobs for temporary workers.

In total, more than 49,000 auto workers are on strike.
