The Teamsters announced a tentative agreement with Hunts Point Produce Market management in the Bronx on Friday night — potentially ending a nearly week-long strike there.

Teamsters Local 202 “will be presenting the agreement to members tomorrow for a vote to settle the strike,” the local tweeted.

“Thanks NYC for all your support in this fight!”

The strike had been championed by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has repeatedly joined the picket line since Sunday in support of a raise of $1 an hour and better health care coverage to meet rising costs due to the pandemic.

Details of the tentative pact were not immediately available.
