History[edit]

2005 teachers' strike[edit]

In 2005, the Pennsbury School District experienced a teachers' strike that generated significant regional coverage by the media. After voting down a tentative contract agreement, the leadership of the Pennsbury Education Association (PEA), the union to which all of Pennsbury's teachers belong, was authorized by its members to strike on October 24, 2005. The strike lasted a total of 21 days, the maximum allowed by Pennsylvania state law, and students went back to class on November 22, 2005. According to both the PEA and the school board, salary and health benefits were the main issues. Teachers objected to having to pay more for their health insurance, and wanted to see teacher salaries stay competitive with neighboring school districts. Both sides entered non-binding arbitration on November 22, 2005, as mandated by state law, and posted their final offers on December 6, 2005. In January 2006, teachers and the school board reached a resolution and the contract was accepted.
