Released By Osceola School District
The Osceola County School Board approved the salary portions of the 2019-2020 contract for employees covered under the Teamsters Local 385 Bargaining Unit on July 30, 2019.
The district will be providing a 40 cent per hour raise to all members of the bargaining unit and a $250.00 one-time retention bonus for those members employed during the 2018-2019 calendar year who had a satisfactory or above rated evaluation. The hourly raise will be retroactive to July 1, 2019.
Employees in the bargaining unit overwhelmingly voted to ratify the district’s offer, as witnessed by the largest turnout in voter numbers in years. The two teams will continue to meet collaboratively to bargain on working condition language. As an example, the team met on July 31, 2019, and reached tentative agreement on the district’s offer to raise the on-call employee rate to $50 per day on paid holidays and non-work days from the existing $20 per day.
