LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles teachers have approved a contract deal between their union and school officials, ending a six-day strike in the nation’s second-largest district.
Although all votes haven’t been counted, the union said Tuesday evening that a “supermajority” of its 30,000 members voted in favor of the tentative agreement.
Educators will go back to work Wednesday morning. They walked off the job Jan. 14.
The agreement reached shortly before dawn Tuesday gives teachers a raise, additional support staff and smaller class sizes.
The Board of Education is expected to move quickly to ratify the deal.
