The Benicia Unified School Board on Thursday will be asked to approve the tentative agreement reached between the school district and the union representing the district’s classified employees.
The deal, which is retroactive to July 1, 2014, is a two-year deal from 2014 to 2016 and pertains to non-teacher employees, including custodians, secretaries, food service and maintenance workers and others.
Deputy Superintendent Michael Gardner said it took about nine months for both parties to reach the agreement, which was done on March 20.“I think it’s a very fair agreement,” Gardner said.
“It’s valuing our classified employees.”
