Volvo employees in Dublin will return to work over the next several days, according to company spokesman John Mies.

Mack Trucks announced yesterday evening that it reached a tentative agreement on the terms of a new contract with the United Auto Workers , covering approximately 3,500 employees at six facilities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Florida.

A Mack power train plant in Hagerstown, Maryland, that supplies engines and transmissions to the Dublin plant was part of the strike, which caused temporary layoffs for a majority of workers at the Pulaski County facility. The company will bring its UAW-represented employees back to work as soon as possible, and expects to restore full production over the next several days, according to a Mack news release.

Mies said the nearly 3,000 employees in Dublin who’ve been furloughed since Monday will return as the flow of engines and transmissions from Maryland starts up again.

The Dublin plant has a total of about 3,500 employees.
