Striking Tacoma Teachers Approve Contract, End Strike
Striking teachers in Washington state's third-largest school district have accepted a contract, ending an eight-day walkout in the 28,000-student district. The teachers' union in Tacoma said the Sept. 21 vote was 98 percent in favor of the agreement.

Chris Gregoire, a Democrat, called both sides to the state capital, Olympia.
