Contract lecturers at the University of New Hampshire have a new collective bargaining agreement.

The school announced Thursday that it had ratified a deal with the lecturers union in late March.

The negotiations date to well before the coronavirus pandemic forced UNH to close its dorms and move to remote instruction.

The new agreement runs through June of 2022. It covers new policies for leaves of absence, performance reviews and promotions, according to a UNH statement.

The school has contracts with about 200 lecturers. Most teach as part of the UNH faculty.
