Saginaw Teachers have agreed to take an additional 6 percent rollback in pay for the next two years. The effort to help the cash-strapped district is in addition to a 3 percent wage rollback that was previously approved.
Teachers' union president Leanne Bauer says two-thirds of the Saginaw Education Association's 400 members voted to accept a new contract on Monday. It's part of the district's deficit-elimination plan, which is awaiting approval by the Michigan Department of Education.
The district has a projected $7 million deficit for the end of the 2014-2015 school year.
