We study the global monodromy on the middle homology group of the universal coverings of the complements to non-singular affine hypersurfaces which intersect the hyperplane at infinity transversely. This monodromy can be regarded as a deformation of the monodromy on the middle homology group of the affine hypersurfaces. We show that this representation becomes irreducible when the deformation parameter is generic.
