Tentative Agreement Between NHUSD and NHTA Ratified By Union Members
Today, members of the New Haven Teachers Association ratified the agreement reached by the District and NHTA Friday night, ending the fourteen day teachers strike. The vote was 60% to 40% in favor of ratification.
The agreement gives members a 4% on-schedule pay increase over two years, 2018/19 and 2019/20, plus a 2.5% off-schedule pay increase for this year, 2018/19. The agreement also includes language that would give teachers up to a 1% on-schedule additional pay increase next year should the District’s revenues come in higher than projected. In addition, the agreement lets retiring teachers earn a complete year of service credit for this 2018/19 school year.
Teachers will return to work on Monday, June 10, in time for the last week of school. We are happy that all of the New Haven community will be able to participate in our students’ end of the year activities and celebrations.
