Teachers in Grand Ledge have rejected a union contract.

The district announced today the teachers voted against the tentative agreement with the Grand Ledge Education Association.

The previous contract expired nearly a year ago.

The tentative agreement included a compensation package which the district said would have upped teacher salaries.

But teachers said it failed to address working and learning conditions.
