North Bergen educators ratified a new three-year contract after calling on the board of education to bargain and participating in unity actions to show solidarity within the district. The union reported reaching a tentative agreement August 28 and members voted to ratify on September 17.

President Elizabeth Lynch reported that an overwhelming majority of members voted in favor of the three-year contract, which reduced health insurance costs by five percent with raises averaging more than three percent per year.
