It is not the first time a tentative agreement has been reached. Earlier this month, union members turned down a possible deal.
The new offer put to members of the Bakery, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union includes cost-of-living adjustments and a $1.10 per hour raise for all employees.
A previous offer that included 3% raises but only some employees would have received cost-of-living adjustments was overwhelmingly rejected last week.

"We value all of our employees. They have enabled Kellogg to provide food to Americans for more than 115 years," Steve Cahillane, the Kellogg Co. chairman and CEO, said. "We are hopeful our employees will vote to ratify this contract and return to work."
The results of the contract vote are expected to be released Tuesday.
