Salem teachers, school board agree to two-year contract
The agreement between the School Board and the Salem Education Association includes no raise the first year and a 1 percent increase the second year of the contract. Teachers will still be eligible for step increases.
The School Board and the union began negotiations in the fall and the agreement was recently ratified.
"This well serves our teachers and our students," said Delahanty.
Although the highest cost option for insurance plans has been dropped, School Board member Pamela Berry said insurance co-pays will remain at $20.
"It will go from $25 per hour to $30 per hour," said Berry. "That hasn't increased in over 20 years."
The contract also includes new stipends for teachers running the Key Club at the Woodbury Middle School and for the Junior Honor Society at the high school. Several stipends were also eliminated from the contract.
