The Baltimore Teachers Union votes to ratify a new contract.

The three-year deal with the school board ensures teachers' health care benefits through the end of 2019. 

It also provides them with a one-time stipend of 1% of their 2016-2017 salaries.

In a statement, they say they're still discussing with the school system about a cost of living adjustment for this school year.

The ratification received more than 90% support.
