Tentative agreement reached with Ann Arbor teachers

The Ann Arbor Public Schools has reached a tentative agreement with the Ann Arbor Education Association, the bargaining unit which represents teachers in the district. The agreement was reached Monday afternoon.

School officials said details would be released when the contract had been ratified by both sides. The AAEA is the district’s largest bargaining unit.

AAEA members will vote electronically on the agreement on Thursday and Friday. If ratified by the union membership, it will be taken to the Ann Arbor Board of Education on Wednesday, June 23 for a ratification vote.

Teachers are working under a 2-year contract which expires on Aug. 30, 2011, but a reopener clause in the contract calls for negotiating the salary schedule for the 2010-11 school year.
