Tentative deal reached to end Jersey City teachers strike

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - Teachers in a large northern New Jersey school district have reached a tentative deal to end their strike.

Jersey City school officials say the agreement was reached Sunday night after a 13-hour negotiations session. But specific details on the proposal have not been disclosed.

The strike had started Friday, forcing the district to open schools for only a half day and cancel other programs. That came after contract talks stalled over health care costs.

Normal school operations are expected to resume Monday.
