CLEVELAND (WJW) -- Union members have reached a tentative agreement with the Cleveland Public Library following months of negotiations.

Just days ago, the union was threatening to go on strike. At the time, they said their primary concerns were staffing and safety.

On Thursday, leaders shared the update. However, they are not releasing exact details until all members have had a chance to vote on the agreement. That is scheduled for Wednesday, January 29.

If ratified by the union, the new agreement would take effect immediately.

The Cleveland Public Library issued the following statement: 

"Cleveland Public Library is pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative contract agreement. Neither side is revealing any details until SEIU District 1199 membership has an opportunity to vote on the contract on Wednesday evening, January 29, 2020."
