ALEDO -- The Mercer County School Board is scheduled to vote Wednesday on a proposed new contract with the Mercer County Education Association, according to Superintendent Alan Boucher.|
Teachers voted last Sunday to accept the contract, although the vote was not unanimous, MCEA president Marcus Bush said.
While not all teachers are required to join the union, they are all represented in the contract, Mr. Bush said. "All are affected by the contract because of the fair share clause." He would not disclose the contract length or other terms, saying he could talk more about it after it is approved by the board of education.
In all, seven negotiation sessions were held between the school district and teacher's union starting on Feb. 26, with the final meeting held July 17.
The previous agreement ended June 30.
School is scheduled to begin Aug. 21 for the more than 1,300 students and 101 teachers.
