BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Bronxville Teachers Association and the Board of Education inked a contract agreement Thusday night that will raise teachers salaries 2.25 percent over a three year period.
Bronxville Teachers Association President Dr. David Katz called the increase "reasonable, fair and appropriate."
Katz said the teachers have been working without a contract since June 30, 2010.
The contact gives no increase for 2010 through 2011, a 1 percent increase for the current year, 2011 through 2012 and a 1.25 percent increase for 2012 through 2013.
Negotiations had been stalled according to Board of Education President Dr. James Hudson, but the teachers drafted a proposal, and overwhelmingly approved it last Friday Hudson said.
"The end result is fair and respectful to both sides," Hudson said.
Katz said that there are approximately 150 teachers in the Bronxville School District.
Katz said that coming to the agreement required some compromise on both sides.
"Throughout the negotiations no member on either side ever lost sight of what was really important, the education of the kids," Katz said.
