Madera Unified teachers and the district have reached a tentative agreement on an employment contract thats held both sides at an impasse for months.
David Holder, Madera Unified Teachers Association president, said Monday
Almost 1,000 teachers met Monday afternoon to go over the tentative agreement.
Teachers have complained about a district proposal that puts a cap on medical payments and requires instructors to undergo training without pay, but its unclear whether these plans are part of the settlement.
Plan specifics will be released Tuesday, Holder said.
Union members will likely vote on the proposal Wednesday. Passing the plan requires a simple majority vote.
Madera Unified Superintendent Ed Gonzalez could not be reached for comment Monday.
Teachers and administrators have wrangled for months over the employment contract that spells out teacher pay and benefits.
A mediator and fact-finding committee have tried to find middle ground between the parties. But talks stalled over the summer when the three-person fact-finding group took longer than expected to evaluate the contract proposals.
That committee has yet to submit its recommendations.
