Teacher salary freezes
Original post made by Fairlands Resident, Fairlands Elementary School, on Apr 23, 2009
I've been told by parcel tax supporters that it is not possible for PUSD to freeze teacher raises (step & column) because of California Ed Code.
But not only do I see that other California school districts are negotiating with their unions about teacher salaries, but PUSD classified employees I know have told me that it is possible for PUSD to negotiate with the Pleasanton teachers' union (APT) about step and column.
It doesn't seem reasonable that there would be a law preventing our school district from negotiating directly with our teachers' union.
If there is a law that prevents this, or something in California Ed code, would someone please post that information?
