General Motors Co (GM) declared on Friday that it reached a tentative labor contract with striking workers at its CAMI plant in Canada, ending an almost month-old dispute.

Some 2,500 workers at the CAMI plant in Ingersoll, in southern Ontario, walked off the job on Sept. 18 after the U.S. automaker rejected a union call to designate the factory as lead production site for the Chevrolet Equinox model in North America.

“These members have shown incredible courage and strength by standing up for good jobs and a secure future for their families and their community,” Jerry Dias, president of Unifor National, the main union leading the contract talks, said in a statement. “This strike has shown all of Canada why a renewed North American Free Trade Contract must address the needs of working people first,” he said.

The contract is subject to member ratification, and Unifor said details of the deal will not be reported until after the vote is held. The ratification vote has not yet been slated. This week, the dispute ratcheted up when GM warned the union that it would start winding down production at the CAMI plant and ramp up output of the popular Equinox SUV at two plants in Mexico unless workers called off their strike.

The union had blamed NAFTA and Mexico’s cheaper labor costs for job losses.

(TSLA) declared that it is partnering with Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. to offer an auto-insurance plan designed specifically for its electric cars in the U.S.

The plan made available to U.S. consumers starting Friday is similar to what Tesla owners have been offered in almost 20 countries. Among other benefits, Liberty will offer to replace damaged Teslas that are deemed a total loss within the first year, according to the automaker’s website. A Tesla spokesman verified the U.S. launch and declined to comment further.

The launch of InsureMyTesla in the U.S. comes after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk took issue with reports earlier this year that insurer AAA was raising rates to insure Tesla vehicles in some markets, citing high claim frequencies and costs. Musk disputed the insurer’s analysis, saying during Tesla’s annual meeting in June that the automaker’s own internal study showed the average cost of insuring a Model S or Model X was about 5 percent lower than for other premium vehicles.

If a Tesla driver’s insurance goes up, “there is a simple solution,” Musk said. “Change your insurance provider.”
