Norwich – The Board of Education Tuesday unanimously approved a three-year contract with the secretaries’ union that calls for 3 percent raises each year, but substantially increases members’ insurance co-payments and prescription drug costs.

The contract covers 24 employees in the Norwich Educational Secretaries AFSCME.

School business administrator Athena Nagel said the contract also eliminated one employment category for 10-month employees, which is no longer used. She said insurance changes district-wide among all unions, including the secretaries’ union, will bring substantial savings to the school system.
