From the Wichita Eagle:
The United Teachers of Wichita announced today that teachers in the Wichita public schools ratified their contract for the 2007-08 school year.
The union said 93.3 percent of the teachers who voted accepted the tentative agreement, which calls for a 4 percent raise but a slight reduction in health benefits. 6.6 percent voted against the new contract.
The tentative agreement between UTW and the Wichita school board will be considered for ratification by the board at a meeting tonight.
