Teachers in Youngstown OK new contract

Staff report

YOUNGSTOWN — The Youngstown Education Association, which represents 450 teachers in the Youngstown City School District, voted to pass a tentative contract on Friday.

The Youngstown Board of Education will vote to ratify the contract at its meeting Tuesday.

“The board and district are thankful to the YEA. We express our gratitude for this collaborative effort, which in turn will support scholar success,” district spokeswoman Stacy Quinones said via email.

She said because the contract has not yet been ratified, no further details will be released. The contract was reached after just two days of negotiations, Superintendent Jeremy Batchelor said last week.

Ratification should rule out any repeat of the strike by city teachers last year that lasted about one month.
