Pay raises considered tonight

CLINTON — Last week, the Clinton School Board during a special meeting approved the collective bargaining agreement for the teachers’ union for the 2013-2014 school year.

Tonight, the board will be asked to ratify tentative contract agreements with the district’s secretaries, food service and custodial workers and set salaries for non union employees not covered under a collective bargaining agreement.

Under the contracts, the secretaries’ union workers will receive a 3.2 salary increase while the food service workers will receive a 3.214 percent increase. Custodial workers will receive a 3.21 percent, across-the-board total salary schedule increase.

The Clinton teachers are receiving a 3.2 percent total package increase, which includes salary and insurance, based on last week’s vote. Across Iowa, teachers received an average of 3.8 percent increase for next school year. The CEA originally asked the district for a 5.5 percent total package, but negotiated to a lower rate because union members considered the effects that declining enrollment, the Archer Daniels Midland settlement and other factors have had on the district’s finances.

The Clinton district’s non union employees also will receive a 3.2 percent total package increase for the 2013-2014 school year.

But while those union and non union employees will receive raises, those covered by after-school and mentoring contracts will not. According to the agenda, the administrator in charge of those program recommends salaries for employees in these grant-funded positions. The recommendation for the 2013-2014 school year sees a zero percent increase in salaries and a reduction in hours for several employees.

Also among the items on agenda, the board will consider approving new hires, resignations and retirements and a cooperative agreement for field experiences with St. Ambrose University; have a budget discussion and consider approving resolutions for the $5.3 million school infrastructure sales, services and use tax bond series and move to approve a change order for the Eagle Heights turning lane.

The board will meet at 5:30 p.m. today at the Clinton Administration Center.
