Bremerton school board approves new contract with staff

The Bremerton school board voted unanimously to approve a new contract with the staff's union at its school board meeting Thursday night. The new collective bargaining agreement will run until Aug. 31, 2015, when a new contract will have to be approved.

Representatives from the district and the Bremerton Professional Education Association, which represents the district’s employees, drafted a tentative agreement, which was brought before the board for approval Thursday.

The next school board meeting will take place Thursday, Feb. 21.
