Bargaining Update for June 6, 2019

The New Haven Unified School District has presented its last, best, and final offer to the New Haven Teachers Association team in an effort to end the thirteen-day strike.  Two proposals were shared with NHTA that nearly doubles the District’s previous best offer and are in alignment with the Fact Finder’s recommendation:

 

Option 1:

  • 3% on-schedule pay increase for 18/19 with a mid-year implementation, retroactive to January 1, 2019
    • Average teacher would see about a $1,450 pay increase for this year and an additional $2,900 beginning in 19/20
  • 3% off-schedule, one-time pay increase for 19/20
    • Average teacher would receive approximately $2,900 in a one-time payment
  • Contingency language that would further increase any on-going pay increase by 0.5% for every $1 million in additional revenues received for 19/20, up to 1%, effective January 1, 2020.

 

 

Option 2:

  • 4.5% off-schedule, one-time pay increase for 18/19
    • Average teacher would receive a one-time payment of approximately $4,400
  • 3% on-going salary increase beginning July 1, 2019
    • Average teacher would see about $2,900 increase in yearly earnings moving forward
  • Contingency language that would further increase any on-going pay increase by 0.5% for every $1 million in additional revenues received for 19/20, up to 1%, effective January 1, 2020.
Both options would cost the District approximately $10.5 million over three years and would increase the amount of cuts required in 20/21.
 
The District's bargaining team remains committed to working with NHTA to bring to an end the teacher work stoppage.
