The Vallejo school board unanimously approved a tentative agreement Wednesday night with the local chapter of the California School Employees Association, which represents non-teacher employees of the Vallejo City Unified School District
Per the agreement, the district will increase its contribution to health and welfare benefits by $200 for various health plans, retroactive to July 1, 2014. For the 2015-16 fiscal year, each cell on the CSEA salary schedule will receive a $2,500 per year increase, effective July 1, 2015.
According to a staff report, the estimated cost for the 2014-15 fiscal year will cost the district more than $736,000 and $2,500,000 for the 2015-16 year.
CSEA President Michael Rhodes addressed the board before the vote, thanking the district for working to help the members of the union.
