T/E School Board, Teachers Union OK Contract

The deal comes after more than nine months of negotiations.

T/E School Board, Teachers Union OK Contract

The Tredyffrin Easttown School District Board of Directors voted Monday night to approve a contract agreement last month with the Tredyffrin Easttown Education Association.

The two year deal essentially freezes salaries for the 439 full time members of the TEEA Union. The two sdes did reach compromises that will increase teacher out of pocket costs for many health benefits.

The teachers will also face the equivalent of two days of unpaid furloughs in each of the contract years.

The contract talks, which at times got heated, ended with handshakes and both sides posing for photos.

Get the full details of the contract and what it could mean for T/E taxpayers next year tomorrow morning on TE Patch.
