With assistance from FMCS mediator Carolyn Brommer, a months-long contract dispute between the Campbell Board of Education and the Campbell Education Association, the union representing 93 of the districtís educators, ended when both parties approved a new, two-year contract.
The parties declared an impasse in late June, but with mediator help returned to negotiations and reached a tentative agreement, averting an intended teacher strike on the first day of classes. Educators and the Board of Education overwhelmingly ratified the new contract July 30.
