Statement from the Office of Catholic Education Regarding Ratification of Teacher Contract

Earlier today, the Secondary School System of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and the Association of Catholic School Teachers, Local 1776 (ACT) reached a one-year agreement for a new contract for full-time, lay high school teachers in the seventeen Archdiocesan high schools.

 

The Office of Catholic Education (OCE) is pleased that the general membership of ACT ratified the contract today. It stands as a testimonial to academic excellence as well as the partnership of teachers, administrators, parents, and students it seeks to represent. It is the agreement we had hoped to obtain for the current and future benefit of everyone.

 

The attached statement was provided to the media a short time ago. It contains additional details. Please pray for our students, school families, teachers, and administrators as the 2017-2018 academic year gets underway. Thank you.

 

Sincerely in Christ,

Rev. Msgr. Daniel J. Sullivan

Vicar for Clergy
