Fairfield-Suisun board inks new labor accord – The Reporter

By Richard Bammer

For the first time in at least five years, Fairfield-Suisun Unified teachers will receive a pay raise, 3 percent across the board, retroactive to July 1, 2013.

The result of months of talks, the wage hike, which will be approved tonight during the district’s governing board meeting, comes after similar boosts in pay for classified, or school support, and some management employees in Solano County’s largest school district.

Besides the raise, elementary teachers were given four hours per month of “release time” for instruction in music, art and physical education, said Laurel Salerno-White, president of the 950-member Fairfield-Suisun Unified Teachers Association.
