► From the Seattle Times — Seattle Schools, educators reach tentative contract agreement to end strike — The Seattle Education Association has reached a tentative agreement with Seattle Public Schools, an announcement that appears to signal the end of a four-day strike. The agreement must still be approved by the membership; a vote has been scheduled for Tuesday. A school start date has not yet been announced. The union and district have been in negotiations for months and continued to bargain after SEA’s contract expired Aug. 31. SEA’s 6,000 members went on strike on Wednesday, which would have been the first day of school, after they were unable to reach a contract agreement with SPS.
THAT’S ALL, FOLKS

We’ll be back at it tomorrow.
