Missoula County Public Schools and the Missoula Education Association (MEA), the union which represents 665 certified educators in the District, have tentatively reached a one-year bargaining agreement. The agreement is contingent on ratification by MEA members when they return to work in August and approval by the District’s Board of Trustees. President of the Missoula Education Association Melanie Charlson says she and her negotiating team are happy with the results of the new contract that features a 2% increase in base salary along with an additional $13 towards insurance.

Steve McHugh, director of human resources and labor relations says both sides have agreed to provide more time for teachers to meet with administrators in addition to their classroom time and lesson plan preparation.
