(Reuters) - The United Auto Workers union is set to announce later on Friday it has chosen Ford Motor Co (F.N) as the next U.S. automaker the union will negotiate with, sources briefed on the matter told Reuters.

The UAW is also expected to separately announce later Friday that members have ratified a deal to end a 40-day U.S. strike at General Motors Co (GM.N). The UAW declined to comment and a Ford spokeswoman said she could not confirm the Dearborn automaker had been chosen.
