Boeing, UAW reach tentative deal

Negotiators for Boeing and the Union representing nearly 1,800 hourly workers at a plant outside Philadelphia have reached a tentative agreement.

The previous contract had expired Oct. 1, and the two sides agreed over the weekend to extend the talks on a day-by-day basis. On Tuesday night, the reached agreement on the proposed deal.
