Breaking: Contract winning by big margin
The proposed D.C. teachers' contract appears to be headed toward ratification by a significant margin. As of 10:15 a.m. the vote was 858 to 203 in favor of the pact, which would provide a 21.6 percent salary hike and a performance pay program. A final tally is expected by early this afternoon.
Ballots are being counted at the offices of the American Arbitration Association at 18th and Eye Sts. A national staff member of the American Federation of Teachers, George Bordenave, is observing the count, taking place in an eighth floor conference room. At the time of my brief visit, AAA staff appeared to be cross-checking the four-digit identification numbers of Washington Teachers' Union members against ballots.
