Officials from the Boston Public Schools and the Boston Teachers Union on Thursday night signed a tentative contract that offers 2 percent annual pay raises, guarantees a full-time nurse in every school, and provides an aide for every kindergarten classroom.
Details on the three-year pact emerged one day after the union notified its more than 7,500 members that an “agreement in principle” had been reached. The agreement paves the way for ratification by union members on June 12. The School Committee will likely vote a week later.
Under the contract deal, the first annual increase of 2 percent would be retroactive, covering the time teachers have worked without a contract, school officials said. The previous agreement expired last August. The other two pay raises of 2 percent would occur over each of the next two years.
