Teachers: Pay boost for Travis School District managers is ‘Me, only’ policy

From page A1 | May 28, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A Travis School District board vote to boost management pay by 5.1 percent has destroyed employees trust, the president of the teacher union says.

Jeanette Wylie said in a press release that the May 13 board vote departs from a long-standing “Me, too” policy of equal increases for all employee groups. A new “Me, only” policy is in place, Wylie said.

The first salary increase since 2006 provides a 3.5 percent increase effective July 1 for teachers, bus drivers, secretaries, custodians and other employees, the union president said.

The 5.1 percent increase for management was not placed on the board’s agenda in April and “will benefit only a small, select group of employees,” Wylie said.

“After five years of pay cuts, teachers and all other employees deserve to be treated fairly and equally,” the teachers union president said. “To increase funding for management before total restoration and reduction of class sizes have been achieved is wrong, wrong, wrong.”

School board president Ivery Hood and Superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak could not be reached for comment Tuesday about Wylie’s statements.

Wylie urged the public to attend the Travis school board’s next meeting at 6 p.m. June 10 at the Travis Education Center, 2775 DeRonde Drive, Fairfield.

    Travis Unified is the best school district in Solano County and it is run very cost effectively. Kate Wren Gavlak is an awesome leader and we have been very well served indeed!

    Actually, no one should have gotten any raises. I'm surprised the union didn't tie the raise with teaching the kids better. If any teacher really feels slighted about this, maybe look for a job that pays better, instead of leaching off the taxpayer.

    What the article doesn't say is that 2% of the raise is to return a pay cut that was given, and in effect, over the past four years. Another 1.5% is not even a cost of living raise. It amazes me that the people at the top who make the most money, give themselves a larger 'raise'. To effectively teach children, teachers and school employees need to be valued. The TUSD is the best in the area! There must be some connection between being the best and the teachers/staff. More money should go directly to students - which means, in part, to those people working directly with the students. The district should not be spending more on administration and making position within the district office which just continue to increase the money spent in upper management. The inequality of raises is just a slap in the face to teachers and other staff.
