I found this article very interesting. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2014/07/16/crowd-turns-out-for-reynoldsburg-teachers-over-contract.html Big notes-they want to give teachers money and have them find their own insurance. They also want to do merit pay using our new evaluations. The district is close to me, so I'll be following pretty closely. We negotiated this year as well and have tentatively agreed on everything. We just need the union to go ahead and ratify it now. I'm very pleased with our new contract.
