The Chico Unified Teachers Association ratified a contract Monday night. Sixty percent of members voted yes.
That’s a rather slim margin for a vote like this.
Kevin Moretti is president of the CUTA. He said the vote was so close because there was a lot for people to not like.
He acknowledged the eventual 9 percent total increase to teacher salary, but said it came with all kinds of cuts.
In fact, he said, even the union members who voted to ratify the contract weren’t crazy about it.
