Volusia County School District And Union At A Deadlock
For the second year in a row, the Volusia County School District has declared an impasse over contract negotiations with the teachers’ union.
The union said it started out asking for a five percent raise this school year and has dropped its requested amount to three percent.
The district is proposing no retroactive raises for this year. Instead, it proposed a raise of more than three percent next year for teachers and support staff.
Teacher health insurance costs are expected to rise.
The union is now asking for a special magistrate to take over the process.
