DETROIT (AP) _ The United Auto Workers and General Motors Corp. reached a tentative agreement Tuesday evening on a contract covering about 185,000 workers, sources close to the talks said.

Terms of the proposed contract were not available.

The deal follows a lucrative four-year contract the UAW negotiated with DaimlerChrysler AG. And it leaves Ford Motor Co. as the only automaker still to finish a contract with the UAW.

The DaimlerChrysler deal was a four-year pact with 3 percent raises each year, a $1,350 signing bonus and improvements in pensions. The UAW traditionally negotiates the same basic terms for all contracts.

The deal came after two days of intensive talks involving UAW President Stephen P. Yokich and GM Chairman Jack Smith.

The UAW represents about 143,000 workers at GM, about 80,000 fewer than it did in 1990. The job losses have come from GM closing factories, using fewer workers on assembly lines, relying on suppliers for more work and not replacing workers as fast as they retire.
