Deere & Company says it's reached a tentative agreement with the United Auto Workers union, which represents 10,000 Deere employees at 12 factories in three states.  

 
The new contract would replace a six-year agreement that expired Wednesday night.  

 The new contract is for six years and will be voted on by union members. It covers manufacturing employees at John Deere facilities in Davenport, Ankeny, Dubuque, Ottumwa and Waterloo, in Iowa; East Moline, Moline and Milan, in Illinois; and Coffeyville, in Kansas.  

     Terms of the agreement weren't released. 

The Argus and Dispatch are reporting some local members of the UAW will meet Sunday morning at United Township High School to consider the proposed contract.
