KTVA reports: Anchorage teachers have voted to accept a new contract. The contract approved Thursday by members of the Anchorage Education Association guarantees raises through the 2009-2010 school year.
Final approval will come from the Anchorage School Board, whose vote is expected on April ninth. Union president Ron Fuhrer is not disclosing the vote count but says it passed by a solid majority.
The 3,500 members of the union -- including teachers, librarians and school nurses -- have worked without a contract since last July.
