Princeton Teachers Union and School Board Reach Tentative New Agreement

The teachers union representing educators in the Princeton Regional Schools and the school board have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract after another closed negotiation session Thursday night.

Details of the agreement are not being released until the deal is ratified by the union and formally approved by the school board.

Joanne Ryan, head of the teachers union, issued a very brief statement after the latest negotiating session.

“After over a year of long and difficult negotiations and an additional  four hours tonight, a tentative  agreement was reached between the school board and the Princeton Regional Education Association,” Ryan wrote.  “The tentative agreement is subject to ratification by both parties. No details can be released until after ratification is complete.”

Union and school board representatives had met with a mediator in marathon negotiation sessions several times since the fall to try to reach an agreement. Teachers have been working without a new contract since June.
