The North Penn School Board and the North Penn Education Association are in the midst of negotiating a new contract for teachers.
President of the North Penn Education Association, Alan Malachowski says, while health benefits will be one of the issues, pensions are also important.
“The state has to step up to the plate. We need to find new revenue streams and we need to fund the pension system to keep the promise that’s been made to the employees who’ve paid their share to the pension fund consistently.”
Malachowski was a guest on the AM Edition Tuesday morning. The current contract expires at the end of June. The next negotiating session is slated for Monday, July 14th
