MMSD school board unanimously approves new contracts
Contracts extend collective bargaining rights into 2015
The Madison Metropolitan School District School Board unanimously passed new contracts for all voting units Monday.
New contracts were ratified by Madison Teachers, Inc. Wednesday night. The contracts carry their collective bargaining rights into 2015.
MTI President John Matthews told News 3 last week it would be the only teachers union in the state to secure a contract through the next school year.
The contract provides a 0.75 percent raise for all five units of MTI membership, including teachers, educational assistants, and clerical and technical staff, to name a few.
The new terms will run from July 1, 2014, to June 30, 2015.
