The Lansing School District has reached a tentative contract agreement with its teachers union.

No details have been released. So it’s unclear whether the deal includes a provision to get around Michigan’s new Right to Work law. 

Lansing teachers’ tentative agreement comes at a time when other unions are racing to put contract extensions into place before Michigan’s new Right to Work law takes effect.

A handful of school districts and Wayne State University have signed extended contracts that would allow the unions to continue to enforce mandatory dues collection. 

The boards of Central Michigan and Ferris State Universities both rejected contract extensions with their faculty unions. 

Michigan’s new Right to Work law takes effect March 28th.

Lansing’s Board of Education and the Lansing Schools Education Association are scheduled to vote on that contract later this week.
