AFSCME! AFSCME! Read All About It!

From the Sun Post;

The first of six employee bargaining units has agreed on a new two-year contract with Robbinsdale District 281 for 2011-13. The District 281 School Board on Feb. 6 approved a new two-year contract for American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Council 5 – Local 499, which includes office employees in District 281.

The agreement, which is retroactive to July 1, 2011, includes a 1.25 percent wage increase in the first year, but no increase in the second year. The district contribution for health insurance will be increased b y 2.5 percent in the first year and 2.63 percent in the second year.

The district is still negotiating with five other bargaining groups: Robbinsdale Federation of Teachers (which also includes educational assistants); Service Employees International Union (SEIU), which includes separate contracts for bus drivers and custodians, and also for child nutrition employees; and principals. All of the district’s union contracts expired June 30, 2011. Employees in the bargaining groups have continued to work under the previous contracts.

All new two-year contract settlements will be retroactive to July 1, 2011.

It’s so nice to negotiate without that stupid January 15 Deadline!
