Los Angeles Unified teachers have approved a new labor agreement with the school district.

The deal gives teachers wide-ranging decision-making power in running their schools.

Under the pact, charter operators won't take over low performing schools.

Instead, teachers and administrators will be allowed charter-like autonomy to write their own management plans for individual schools.

The teachers' union said nearly 70 percent of its members voted in favor of the agreement.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
