AURORA (AP) -- Mesabi East teachers on Wednesday voted to accept a contract agreement that union and district negotiators reached Aug. 23.
The School Board was expected to vote Thursday whether to approve the 1999-2001 teachers contract. The school district is the last in the state to reach an agreement with its teachers.
Negotiations for the teachers' 1999-2001 contract began in August 1999, and at one point in May appeared to be headed for a strike.
