Salt Lake teachers, school district reach working agreement

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Salt Lake teachers association and the city's school district have reached a tentative agreement.

The Deseret News reported Wednesday that the two sides in a labor dispute reached the working agreement after meeting with a federal mediator Wednesday.

The school district says in a statement that details of the agreement are expected to be released Aug. 7.

The district says the deal must first be shared with the Salt Lake City Board of Education and the Salt Lake Education Association executive board.

Officials say the agreement must be ratified by a majority vote of association members in late August and then by the school board in September.

A month ago the parties declared an impasse over the salary schedule and other issues and mutually agreed to mediation.
