Labor contract approved
The school board approved a three-year labor contract with its Public Service Employees at its meeting Monday night.
The contract runs from the 2012-13 school year through 2014-15 school year.
In the immediate year, the district has agreed to increase wages for its building secretaries by 40 cents per hour for additional work they have been asked to do.
In the 2013-14 school year, PSE employees, (clerical, janitors, bus drivers and aides) will receive a 2.5 percent wage increase. And in the final year of the contract, wages will remain the same unless the Legislature allows for a cost-of-living increase.
