Formal tentative agreement not reached in San Ramon Valley Unified negotiations

SAN RAMON, Calif. (KGO) -- After a 13-hour bargaining session, contract talks broke off Wednesday between the teachers' union and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. Talks ended about 11:30 p.m. A formal tentative agreement was not reached.

Both sides agree however that progress was made to head off a possible teacher's strike. The San Ramon Valley Education Association says a tentative agreement on class size reduction could not be agreed to.

No new talks were scheduled for Thursday. More than 90 percent of the union voted last week to authorize a strike next month if necessary.
