After 10 months of bargaining, teachers in Minneapolis have reached a tentative agreement with Minneapolis Public Schools.
Minneapolis Federation of Teachers President Michelle Wiese said negotiators for the union and the school district came to an agreement late Sunday night.
Wiese said she can't discuss the exact terms of the deal until the district's 3,500 teachers approve it. A ratification vote is expected at the end of the month.
"We were trying for a number of things that we believe are for the common good. We're looking at small class sizes, clean and healthy buildings," Wiese said.
If approved, the two-year contract would be retroactive to July of 2017.
Last month public school teachers in St. Paul narrowly averted a strike after contract talks went down to the wire.
