The Boston Teachers Union approved a contract Wednesday night that would give teachers a 2% raise for each of the next three years, increase the number of mental health counselors in schools and help homeless students.
Each of the BTU’s four bargaining units — teachers, paraprofessionals, substitutes and therapists who work with autistic students — voted in favor of ratification.
The agreement, which must be approved by the School Committee before taking effect, was reached last month between the BTU and the city.
“Tonight’s overwhelming approval demonstrates deep support from members of the Boston Teachers Union for the new resources we have won for students,” BTU President Jessica Tang said in a statement. “It is symbolic of our continued commitment to fight for the schools our students deserve.”
