Tentative agreement for East Providence teachers

May 24, 2010

After weeks of negotiation, teachers in East Providence reached a tentative deal over the weekend for a new contract . The teachers have been working without at contract since 2008. The school board slashed their pay and benefits last year without negotiations, and the board has discussed a similar move this year under a district-wide cost-cutting plan. Union officials meet with East Providence teachers today to present the deal but said they would not discuss details until the agreement has been ratified. Both the teachers and the school committee still have to vote to accept the contract.
