With both sides watching budget deadlines, even as the state Legislature haggles over spending priorities and cuts, the Vacaville Teachers Association and Vacaville Unified School District leaders have agreed on a tentative one-year pay and benefits package.
Teachers agreed to a 6.5 percent salary reduction, or six furlough days, if Gov. Jerry Brown’s November tax initiative fails to pass; and to a 3.5 percent reduction, or one furlough day, if it passes, association president Moira McSweeney said during Thursday’s board meeting in the Educational Services Center.
Association members will vote on the agreement in the coming days, she told the trustees, who will place it on the June 14 board agenda for approval/disapproval. If approved, the contract will run from July 1 to June 30, 2013.
