In a joint press conference with Mayor Eric Garcetti, who stepped in to help mediate over the weekend, union and district leaders this morning announced a tentative contract agreement to end the historic teachers strike that over the past week brought tens of thousands of teachers and supporters into the streets — and the state's public education crisis into the mainstream.

The proposed contract goes beyond a typical labor agreement to include a broad spectrum of non-salary issues — class size, support staff, charter regulation, even green spaces — not typically included at the negotiating table. Pending union members’ approval, teachers should be back at work tomorrow.
