APPLETON (WKOW) -- Appleton teachers will have some collective bargaining rights next year.
The school board approved a one-year contract extension that nearly parallels concessions the state is seeking, but retains some collective bargaining language.
The state law removing most collective bargaining from a majority of public workers becomes law Wednesday.
Appleton teachers will contribute 5.8 percent to their pensions and 12 percent toward health insurance premiums. Teachers union president Candi Breitengross says it's a morale boost knowing educators have a bit of stability next year.
