LOS ANGELES (AP) — Employers at the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach say that workers will return to the job in the morning after an agreement that ended an eight-day strike.

Stephen Berry of the Los Angeles/Long Beach Harbor Employers Association said in a statement Tuesday night that that striking clerical workers and the longshoremen who refused to cross their picket lines will be back on the job Wednesday morning.

The statement came shortly after negotiators voted to approve a tentative agreement to end the strike, which crippled the nation's largest port complex.
