What does that mean? The median salary for positions in the bargaining unit is $45,000. So half of us will get a raise of $900/year or less; that’s $37.50 per paycheck, minus taxes. The additional 1% in September is an additional $450/year (or less); that’s $18.75/paycheck, minus taxes.
Given that our initial proposal to the administration was 5% per year, the bargaining team feels like we have an obligation to keep fighting. But, we want to know how you feel. What should we be fighting for?
