A new contract between the Neshaminy School District and its teachers union is one step closer to reality.

On Monday night, less than a week after officials of the district and the Neshaminy Federation of Teachers announced a tentative agreement on new contract terms, the union said in a statement that its members voted overwhelmingly in favor of ratifying the new deal.

The tally was 487 in favor, 21 against, the union said; about 80 percent of the union’s workforce turned out to vote.

The union’s approval means that only a school board vote stands in the way of ending the five-year negotiating stalemate. A board meeting is scheduled for next Thursday.
