The Federal Public Schools Way School Board approved the one-year contract Tuesday. ”The future of wages in Federal Way will be different,” McCann said. ”There are restrictions on collective bargaining and wages. In fact, Parliament said they would leave the federal way behind. Despite an interim agreement, much remains to be done before federal employees see a significant pay change. ”I would like to congratulate the entire team, FWPS and FWEA, for their efforts and long hours at the negotiating table to reach a final agreement,” Said Way Federal Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Tammy Campbell in an email. ”They co-founded a collaborative agreement that provides for much-needed employee pay increase, while positioning ourselves to achieve the goals of our strategic plan.” At Tuesday`s school board meeting, National Highway Schools approved their preliminary collective agreement with the Federal Road Education Association. JEROD YOUNG, Spiegel Bundesweg Public schools and the Federal Road Education Association have tentatively agreed on a compensation package for district employees.
After Landkreis has approved the contract, the FWEA and the District will complete the language and conclude the final official contract within the next two weeks. The agreement approved by the school board corresponds to a temporary solution. The district`s biggest obstacle is Washington state legislation. For now, the educators and federal track maintenance personnel are receiving much-needed compensation with this new agreement. The School Foundation Board also approved a 2.5 percent pay increase for the 2019/20 school year for workers who are not represented by a collective class, including head office employees and district administrators. The agreement also stipulates that assistance staff will see an hourly wage increase of 6.36 per cent, which was applied to the 2016-17 schedule, and a one-time bonus of 227.25 $US they will receive in November. Fort Wayne Community Schools Board of School Trustees on Monday, October 14, approved a two-year contract with the Fort Wayne Education Association (FWEA), which represents teachers in the district. McCann said the assumption within the FWEA was that Federal Way was sucked into a real estate group with a north tacoma and a central kitsap, decimating the real estate value of Federal Way. Federal Way Schools are suffering from what Federal Way Education Association President Shannon McCann called a ”regionalization factor.” ”The borough has long fought to have our teachers compensated in a competitive manner,” Campbell said.
”Unfortunately, the passage by Washington law of a funding factor for regionalization of wages makes it extremely difficult for us to compete in our region, as we will again receive less funding than many of our surrounding school districts.” The reason is the capital and real estate value of the city within a 15 mile radius. ”It`s very mysterious and arbitrary, in terms of the formula that was applied to Federal Way,” McCann said. ”It`s a service of poor service to our community for educators and students.” However, the District and the FWEA agree that it is possible and necessary to increase the work of educators, both nationally and locally. All teaching assistants receive a cost-of-living adjustment of 2.3 per cent, while certified teachers receive a 7.95 per cent salary [local assistance] and a cost-of-living adjustment of 2.3 per cent.
