GALESBURG - Galesburg teachers began voting on a tentative contract agreement at 8:00AM Thursday that would end a nearly two-week old strike.

The Galesburg Education Association and District 205 School Board met for 13-hours Wednesday. The two sides finished talks around 3:00AM today.

Details of the agreement have not been released.

If the tentative agreement is ratified by the union, students would return to the classroom on Friday.

WMBD 31 has a crew in Galesburg and we'll have the latest on the vote later today.
