The Chico Unified Teachers Association will hold a meeting Monday to vote on the tentative agreement reached with the Chico Unified School District earlier this month.
The meeting will be held at 3:45 p.m. and members of the teachers association will be given the chance to ask questions and hold a ratification vote.
The Chico Unified School District and the teachers association reached the tentative agreement in early April.
Getting to this point has been a bumpy ride since the start of contract talks early last year. The disagreements rapidly intensified with the union's advisory vote to strike and the district's placement of a "help wanted" ad for substitute teachers in the local paper. The sides finally came together to agree on a salary increase for teachers among several other non-financial issues.
The tentative agreement would give the teachers a three percent pay increase over the year and a six percent increase starting in January 2016.
