WATSONVILLE — The Pajaro Valley Unified School District Board of Trustees on Wednesday will consider giving final approval to a collective bargaining agreement with the Pajaro Valley Federation of Teachers, and will discuss the financial impacts of the new contract.
The district and PVFT reached an agreement in December after months of tense negotiations. The contract gives the teachers a 7 percent raise, and guarantees class size reduction for kindergarten, second and third grades.
It also allows the teachers’ union to take up salary, benefits and other issues as “reopeners” when negotiations begin again in the spring.For the complete article see the 02-04-2014 issue.
