The Howard County school system and its teachers' union have reached a tentative agreement for a new contract, avoiding potential arbitration and resolving disputes that lingered throughout the past school year. The one-year deal announced Friday, which must be ratified by the school board and Howard County Education Association members, calls for a 3 percent raise as well as a half-step increase retroactive to July 1. Step increases are based on length of service. Another half-step would be given in a lump-sum payment July 1 of next year.

The two sides are discussing salaries, benefits and work conditions, including time allotted for teacher training, and teacher evaluations, said Mark D.

The old adage of "repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth" contains just enough truth that I am compelled to call a lie a lie when I know it is. Baltimore MayorStephanie Rawlings-Blake's mantra that Baltimore's firefighters and officers turned down a 20-percent wage increase in exchange for a longer work week is simply not true, and she knows it ("City spending panel OKs contract for fire chief," July 12). Yes, such an offer was on the table during the most recent round of negotiations with the city's fire unions, but it was pulled back by the city when it became apparent that any potential savings would be years down the road.

As Baltimore school and teacher union officials prepare to return to the negotiating table next week, they said they don't expect to make significant changes to the tentative agreement that educators rejected Thursday and will concentrate instead on clearly explaining the terms of the innovative contract. Bargaining teams for the Baltimore Teachers Union and the school district said they are optimistic that they can reach an agreement that educators will approve. The contract, which was one of the most contentious to be introduced in the city, was rejected by 58 percent of the 2,600 union members who cast ballots this week.
