The Orion Assembly plant will resume work with the first shift on Monday, Oct. 28.
More than 57 percent of the UAW members at GM voted in favor of the new four-year contract.
The new agreement will keep the Detroit-Hamtramck plant open after it was scheduled to close in January.
The union will begin negotiating a new contract with Ford next.
