The Manchester city teachers union has voted down a proposed four-year contract that would have raised single-digit health care premiums to 15 to 20 percent, while guaranteeing $900 yearly raises for all teachers, including those already at the top of the salary scale. The Union Leader reporting Mayor Ted Gatsas, who worked over the past several months alongside district officials to come up with the contract, said he was “sad” that it had been voted down.
