COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – There’s a tentative deal to end the Columbus teachers strike.

The two sides came up with an agreement at 2:30 Thursday morning after 14 hours of non-stop negotiations.

The teachers will vote this weekend and return to work if that vote is in the affirmative.

Union leadership is recommending passage.

Meantime, the kids learn virtually with subs.
