3 percent raise for Fairfield-Suisun teachers will cost $2.2M

By From page A4 | April 25, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A contract that gives teachers a 3 percent raise costing a total of $2.2 million won unanimous approval Thursday by Fairfield-Suisun School District trustees.

The contract with the Fairfield-Suisun Unified Teachers Association covers the 2013-14 fiscal year. Teachers will receive a check for the retroactive pay increase.

The website for the teachers union said members had overwhelmingly ratified the measure with 370 of the 380 members who cast ballots voting in favor.

David Isom, president of the board of trustees, spoke of the great relationship he said the Fairfield-Suisun district has with its teachers.

“I’m so glad it is still intact,” he said after the vote.

    Three percent isn't enough for all the teachers do. We better start paying attention. To education or were all going to be speaking another language like chinese .Do we think they are paying off college debt for years to do all the extra work they do and be treated the way they have ?

    So CalSTRS, the teachers' pension fund, is underfunded by an estimated $70 BILLION. Shouldn't this $2.2 million go into that fund instead of making it even more in the red than it already is? (Higher salaries yield higher calculated pensions.)
