York City’s school board on Wednesday authorised a new union deal providing accommodations for furloughed employees, this sort of as priority hiring for open positions and substitute educating work opportunities.

The one-year collective bargaining arrangement was agreed to in July by the York Metropolis Education and learning Affiliation and district officials and came right before the school board Wednesday for closing acceptance.

An addendum to the contract involves a memorandum of understanding that gives aid for dozens of York Metropolis University District employees who ended up laid off or furloughed since the district’s finances cuts again in June.

“With anything taken into thought, I consider that it was a honest deal,” explained YCEA President Jeff Werner, when arrived at Wednesday. 

Instructors from the art, audio, Spanish and physical education departments that were being slice in June — and from a number of programs that had been eradicated entirely — are issue to an MOU that will reduce the affect of all those variations.
