PATERSON, N.J. - After working almost four years without an active contract, Paterson teachers received word last week about a pending agreement with the school district.However, it was not the news they were expecting.
Sources close to the teachers' union said the teachers were unhappy with the overall outcome of the alleged agreement.
Documents obtained by TAP into Paterson show teachers are seeing their pay structure drastically changed, with the most tenured teachers receiving just less than $100,000.
The proposed agreement would expire following the 2016-17 school year.
After showing their displeasure towards the new contract, the teachers have been invited to a meeting with school district personnel on Tuesday to help understand the new agreement.
The meeting will take place at Kennedy High School from 3-7 p.m.
