Teachers vote to approve new contract

By Gabrielle Porter

Members of Jeffco’s teachers union have voted to approve a 10-month contract with the school district, a news release reports. 

Members of the Jefferson County Education Association began voting on the streamlined 10-month contract at an Aug. 21 all-members meeting, and announced the results in a news release Wednesday. Union bargainers were unhappy with the relatively short duration of the contract but said in earlier sessions they didn’t think the school board would approve a longer agreement.
