Teachers reject contract


Members of the Westford Education Association, the union representing local teachers, have voted against ratifying a proposed two-year contract that had been reached on Feb. 28 after 14 months of negotiations. The 478-member union rejected the agreement by a ratio of more than 2 to 1; the pact would have been retroactive to Aug. 31, when the previous contract expired. The union would like pay raises to be retroactive, but the School Committee wants the raises to begin in the second year of the contract, which starts July 1. - Brenda J. Buote
