LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles Unified School District has reached a tentative contract deal with its teachers.

The three-year tentative deal was reached late Friday and includes a 10 percent raise over two years.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/1ztGqvw) that teachers at LAUSD have not had a raise in eight years.

Both sides have been involved in tense negotiations for more than a year and this deal will forestall talk of a strike.

The pact must be ratified by both the union membership and the Board of Education.

Teachers had asked for an immediate 8 ½ percent raise.

The district wanted a 4 percent raise this year and a 2 percent raise next year in the form of four additional work days for training.
