Even though they're still on strike, John Deere will continue to provide health care benefits for its hourly workers.

That was the announcement Friday afternoon one week after the walkout began, and while negotiations continue with the UAW.

In addition, the company says workers who earned incentives before the strike from the Continuous Improvement Pay Plan, will receive them as scheduled.

Deere says, "We are taking these steps to demonstrate our commitment to doing what’s right by our employees and focusing on all that we can achieve together."
