Members of the Roxana Education Association have approved a new contract with the Roxana School District.   The union voted yesterday in favor of the deal that reportedly addressed vacancy language and offered teachers an annual salary hike of 3.1 percent over the four-year agreement.

The union had been working without a contact since last July, and issued an intent to strike notice in March but never walked the picket line.  The two sides met just before Easter and hammered out a final agreement without the help of a mediator.
