EVANSVILLE, Ind. - The union that represents the Evansville school district's teachers has reached a tentative contract calling for an across-the-board salary increase.
Evansville Teachers Association President Mark Lichtenberg says the agreement with the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corp. for the 2014-15 school year will also include a compensation provision to boost teachers' base salary for those qualifying under state guidelines.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports that the contract's specifics were withheld by the union until a meeting of its members later this month.
The teachers' most recent contract took effect in fall 2010 and expired June 30.
The new tentative contract was reached after five days of formal collective bargaining negotiations, although the district's bus aides, bus drivers, custodians, special education assistants and secretaries still do not have a contract.
