Teachers’ contract votes expected this month

Minneapolis teachers would receive some “steps and lanes” payments but no cost-of-living adjustment to their salaries under a tentative 2009–2011 contract agreement reached with the district Dec. 27.

The contract awaits approval by teachers and the School Board, but both groups were expected to take action later this month. Negotiations on the contract began in August 2009 and stretched to almost 18 months, a delay that cost the district $800,000 for missing a state-imposed deadline one year ago.
