Sunday marks one month of the John Deere strike.

As of Friday, the UAW and John Deere have reached a third tentative agreement.

Workers will remain on picket lines until the official ratification of the new deal.

A Deere spokesperson says the company will let the ratification process play out.

According to a statement made by the UAW, they will present the company’s offer for ratification and support the outcome as determined by its members.

The ratification vote will be Nov. 17.
