FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (WHNT) -Workers at Goodman Manufacturing in Fayetteville have voted to approve the negotiated agreement, ending the 5-day strike.

Employees are now able to return to their regular scheduled shifts at Goodman starting Thursday night.

“We believe that this new contract agreement meets the needs of our employees and our customers while permitting the company to remain competitive,” said Bill Miller, Vice President of Operations at the Fayetteville facility. “Further, it favorably positions the local facility for potential future growth.”

Union officials and Goodman representatives were able to reach an agreement that offered several equitable benefits, including a combination of wage increases and medical coverage contributions that are favorable to both groups.

Goodman has manufactured residential and commercial heating and cooling systems at the Fayetteville facility since 1968.
