Teachers in Union City's New Haven Unified School District have agreed to major pay cuts for the next school year. The teachers voted to be paid for nine fewer days during the school year and to take an additional 1 percent pay cut to help mitigate cuts stemming from the ongoing state budget crisis.

The New Haven Teachers Association says this new contract will cost the typical teacher nearly $7,500 during the next school year.

Other school district employees also reached similar concession agreements.

A school parcel tax for the district failed at the polls last week.
