WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - Wenatchee teachers probably won’t be the latest group to go on strike. The teachers union and the school district have reached a tentative agreement they will vote on Saturday.

KPQ Radio reports (https://is.gd/FDPKQE ) the agreement on a new contract was reached on Thursday. Details of the plan have not been released. If teachers give the contract their OK on Saturday, the school board will vote.

Teachers in Wenatchee decided not to strike at the start of the school year while negotiations continued. But the union voted Wednesday to authorize a strike if they didn’t reach a deal by Sunday afternoon.

Issues being debated included smaller class sizes, improved workloads and teacher pay.
