Seattle teachers approve new contract
The Seattle Education Association has approved a new contract with the school district, putting to rest the potential for another strike as the school year begins.
A total of 4,143 members of the teacher's union voted, according to the union, and 82% approved.
The tentative agreement included some annual pay bumps, or accommodations for inflation (whichever is greater).
Seattle teachers went on strike this month, delaying the first day of classes by about a week. A tentative agreement between the union and Seattle Public Schools was struck last week. Union members voted on the contract Monday evening.
