Teachers in Providence, R.I., have voted to remove a provision in their contract, finalized in May, that could have resulted in an 8 percent raise.

In exchange, the city agreed to add language basing layoffs largely on seniority.

Under the deal, teachers will receive a 1 percent increase for the current school year, a 1.75 percent increase at the beginning of the 2016-17 school year, and a 1.5 percent increase on the final day of the 2016-17 school year. The deal awaits approval by city officials.
