Report: Neshaminy teachers authorize another strike

    Neshaminy teachers have voted to authorize a strike, the Inquirer reports, but have not decided whether to walk out.

    This is the teachers’ second strike authorization this year as the union and district continue to disagree over contract terms. The Neshaminy Federation of Teachers members have been working under a contract that expired four years ago.
    An arbitrator has recommended a seven-year contract through June 2015 with  back pay, contributions for health care, continued retirement bonuses and raises for the final four years. The school board rejected the idea, and the NFT approved it with reservations.

    The union must give 48 hours’ notice of a strike.
