Travis teachers on Tuesday issued a press release claiming that management is set to be paid more come July 1 than what was previously bargained for.
In a Travis Unified Teachers Association (TUTA) announcement, the group alleges that the Travis Unified Governing Board, “recently voted to increase the total compensation package for its management and confidential employees beyond the increase bargained by teachers, bus drivers, secretaries, custodians and all other employees.” The board action, on a 4-0 vote, came during its May 13 board meeting, according to the press release from TUTA.
“In the first salary increase since 2006, all Travis employees will receive a total increase of 3.5 percent, effective July 1, under their recently ratified agreements. Management and confidential employees, however, will receive a total increase of 5.1 percent,” the announcement indicates.
