Striking Will County employees reach tentative deal

A three-week strike in Will County appears to be over.

Earlier Wednesday morning, Will County officials reached a tentative agreement with striking union employees.

Workers walked off the job last month after contract talks between the county and its biggest union broke down.

The county wanted workers to pay a bigger share of health insurance, and employees were asking for more money.

No details about the agreement will be released until union members vote on the contract Thursday.

Workers also will begin returning to work on Thursday.
