Union Garners 10% Raise for Hillsborough County (FL) Media Specialists & Teachers

Hillsborough County's public school teachers will see their best pay raise in two decades - a 10 percent salary increase for the coming school year.The agreement struck Thursday between school administrators and the teachers union seeks to make Hillsborough more competitive with neighboring counties in recruiting and keeping teachers...
Negotiators at the Hillsborough Classroom Teachers Association touted a raise that comes with few strings attached. They agreed to eliminate one early release day in the fall. They also signed off on adding 20 minutes to teachers' days for planning during the 2007-08 school year. The time was not included in the salaries set for the 2006-07 year."We really thought the teachers deserved a clean 10 percent increase across the board," said Jean Clements, president of the teacher's union.
