Some catholic school teachers reach new contract deal

Some Catholic elementary and high school teachers have reached a new contract agreement.

The president of the Federation of Catholic School Teachers said the two sides reached a three-year deal, which included a twelve percent wage increase over three years. The new contract also allows teachers an enhanced pension.

The Lay Faculty Association, which represents some Bronx high school teachers, says it hasn?t been offered this new contract and they plan to meet on Tuesday with the archdiocese for further negotiations.
