Trustees of the Vacaville School District approved new contracts and raises Thursday for the district’s employee unions. The action was taken with very little discussion and positive comments from the board members.
Both the Vacaville Teachers Association and the Service Employees International Union received a 3.78 percent raise, replacing some of the pay concessions that have been made in recent years as the district weathered the recession. The new contracts are for the 2013-14 school year and pay increases are retroactive to July 1, when the new fiscal year began.
