BMW AG (Xetra: BMW), a Germany-based automaker, has reached an agreement with the Teamsters Local 459.

This move will allow the workers to retain their jobs.

Teamsters general president Jim Hoffa, said, 'This agreement shows what Teamsters can do when we stand together and fight back. Teamsters across the country, and unions that represent BMW and supply-chain workers across the globe, took part in numerous solidarity actions this summer in support of these workers. I am hopeful that the contract extension signals a new path for BMW and the Teamsters.'
