WASHINGTON (AP) — A tentative agreement was reached Thursday between Verizon Communications and unions representing 78,000 East Coast telephone technicians and operators who have been without contracts for more than a month.

The five-year agreement was being finalized and an official announcement was expected later, said sources close to negotiations.

Members of the Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers still must approve any agreement.
