West Shore teachers, district reach contract deal

LEWISBERRY, Pa. (WHTM) – The West Shore School District has reached a tentative agreement with its faculty union for a six-year contract.

The school board will vote to ratify the agreement on Nov. 10. Members of the West Shore Education Association members will meet to review the agreement on the same day and they’re scheduled to vote on Nov. 14, according to a joint news release from the district and union.

Details of the agreement were not released.

Contract negotiations began more than two years ago. The union had authorized its leadership to call a strike.

In the news release, school board president Ronald Candioto said he believes the tentative agreement is “good for all parties, including district residents, and will help to establish a foundation for long-term financial stability.”

WSEA president Kevin Downs called the agreement “a fair compromise between the education association and the school district.”
