West Shore teachers agree to contract

CAMP HILL, Pa. (WHTM) – Two-and-a-half years of bargaining talks have come to an end after teachers in the West Shore School District agreed to a new contract.

The school board voted unanimously Thursday to accept the proposed agreement put before them.

The West Shore Education Association has 576 members, which represents teachers that had been working over 800 days without a new contract.

“While it’s been a long bargaining process, we appreciate the district bargaining team’s willingness to work with us in the past month to reach a contract before the end of the year,” WSEA president Kevin Downs said in a release.

The contract, which runs retroactively from the 2014-15 school year, will expire June 30, 2020. The agreement includes overall salary increases of over 2 percent from the 2015-16 school year through the 2019-20 school year.
