Union members at Cooper Tire in northwest Ohio are set to vote Monday on a tentative five-year agreement with the company that could end a months-long lockout.

More than 1,000 workers at the plant in Findlay were locked out in November. They had rejected an earlier contract offer, saying they were upset over proposed pay cuts and increased health care costs.

Multiple media outlets have reported that newer hires would be compensated differently than veteran workers under the proposed agreement.
