The Directors Guild of America has reached a tentative agreement with television networks ABC, CBS and NBC for wage and other increases for news, sports and operations employees.

The DGA National Board of Directors voted unanimously over the weekend to send the new agreement to members for ratification, the labor union said on Tuesday.

The three-year contract covers staff and freelancers who work for the aforementioned television networks and at a number of their locally-owned affiliate stations.
