PRINCETON: School board reaches agreement with two unions, but not the teachers

Princeton’s school board has reached agreement on new contracts with two of its employee bargaining units, but not its teaching staff.

The board announced after a special meeting Wednesday night that the unions representing the support staff and the principals, assistant principals and supervisors had agreed to three-year contracts, according to a board statement issued after the meeting. Their current contracts expire on June 30.

The board and the teachers union remain in negotiations, although the sides failed to reach an agreement at their last meeting on May 4. The state-appointed mediator has referred the matter for fact-finding to the New Jersey Public Employees Relations Commission.
