Tonawanda The nationwide labor dispute comes to an end at least for tonight as the United Steel Workers and Dunlop arrive at a tentative agreement.

The 1000 employees at Goodyear-Dunlop in Tonawanda were put on notice by Local 135 to be prepared to strike if a deal wasn't reached by the midnight deadline.

Union leaders tell us workers will not go on strike and after the clock strikes 12 will continue working at the Sheridan Drive plant.

Corporate officials say key issues in this years negotiation process included pensions and benefits.

An official vote will take place in the near future.
