    Your story is slightly misleading. The statement doesn’t say a tentative agreement was met. It states, “tentative agreements on several significant issues.” Also, it doesn’t state anything about a vote on Sunday. Please be careful with your wording. Tentative agreements, once met, will be presented for a vote before finalizing the agreement. According to the statement, they hope to have a tentative agreement ready for voting after Sunday’s negotiations.
