A lawsuit with local ties could be dropped this week as a part of the agreement between the United Auto Workers and General Motors.

If the tentative agreement is ratified later this week, the UAW will withdraw its lawsuit over the plant in Lordstown.

According to the 2019 contract settlement agreement between the two parties, once the agreement is officially ratified, the lawsuit will be dismissed with prejudice. Litigation will then go to arbitration and be settled outside of court.

The new deal also does not include a new product for the Lordstown plant and would wind-down the plant, along with two others.

On March 6, the GM Lordstown plant was idled after rolling out it's last Chevy Cruze.

Voting on the new contract agreement will be held on Thursday.
