Teachers in the Palmerton Area School District have a new four-year contract.
On a unanimous vote, the school board on Tuesday accepted a fact finder report from the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board.
Afterward, Palmerton Area Education Association President Tom Smelas said that the report has been agreed to by both parties.
"We have a contract," Smelas said. "It's been a long two-and-a-half years; both sides worked real hard, and this is the end result."
Smelas added, "A third party came in and gave a recommendation, and the two sides agreed to it."
