Washington School Board to Discuss Union Contract

Posted: Wednesday, April 28th, 2010 at 6:10 am

Washington School Board members are slated to take action on a new contract with the union representing teachers. The deal is expected to save nine jobs in the district that had previously been on the chopping block in the wake of state budget cuts. The Washington Education Association has entered into a tentative agreement with the board, under which teachers would take a lower cost insurance plan, but still be eligible for scheduled pay increases. Board members have a special meeting tonight at 7:30 in the school administration building. The contract would still need to be ratified by the union.
