Deere & Co. and the United Auto Workers union have tentatively reached a new, six-year labor agreement that represents thousands of workers at its Iowa, Illinois and Kansas factories.

The agreement covers more than 10,000 production and maintenance workers. Deere and UAW also reached a six-year collective bargaining agreement that includes nearly 100 production and maintenance workers at Deere parts plants in Denver, Colo., and Atlanta, the company said.

On Friday, UAW said it has agreed to extend the current collective bargaining agreement.

All of Deere's operations will continue to operate normally, the company said.

Union members will need to review the terms of the agreement and ratify it with a vote.
