New contract for Burlington teachers

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Burlington teachers head back to school with a new contract.

The school district and the union announced a three-year agreement that will give teachers a 3 percent raise this year and 4.5 percent in each of the next two years.

Burlington's teachers are currently seventh highest paid in the county. This contract will move them to fifth. And going forward, negotiations will aim to keep Burlington in the middle of the county pay scale.
