Bill Cousins, local president of 'he Alberta Teachers" Asso- ciation, said Thursday the pub- lie school contract was ap- proved by more than 80 per cent of the teachers in- volved. The public board's offer means a 6.2 per cent raise for teachers this year, increasing to seven per cent in 1971 The contract expires Dec. 31. 1974. The new salary scale ranges from a minimum of S8.700 to a maximum S14.13Q per year. A total of 388 teachers are under the public board's jurisdiction. ''Negotiations went very well.

"The salary increases pro- posed were not adequate in re- lation to other awards in other parts of the province.'' Mr. Spackman said. If teachers approve strike ac- tion, which Mr. Spackman said has the backing of ATA south- west district officials, a formal request will be made to the In- dustrial Relations Board at Ed- monton.

Mr. Spackman. said proce- dures leading up to a general strike by rural teachers should be complete within two weeks.
