Montgomery County Children's Services workers, who returned to their jobs on Tuesday, have voted to approve a tentative agreement to end a more-than-weeklong strike.

County commissioners are expected to vote on the agreement next Tuesday.

Under the agreement, employees would receive a 4.5 percent raise retroactive to April 1 of this year. Employees would also receive a $250 payout as part of the settlement deal. And all pay rates will be increased at the top level by 1 percent.
