The Teacher Bargaining Unit has voted on the Tentative Agreement that addresses 2020-2021 inequities in salary increases. The agreement included a one-time bonus in the amount of $1,500 for members of the Teacher Bargaining Unit who received a pay increase that was less than $3,000 in the 2020-2021 bargaining agreement. The votes were counted at the DTU office on June 1, 2021, and the results are as follows:
98% of the ballots submitted were in favor of accepting the agreement. 1.0146% of the ballots submitted were not in favor of accepting the agreement. The agreement has been ratified by the Teacher Unit members.
Below you will find the tentative agreement that will be voted on by the Duval County School Board at a special called meeting by June 9, 2021. Once approved by the School Board, the supplement will be tentatively scheduled for payment on June 30, 2021. This is a supplement, and it will not be placed on the salary schedule. It is not recurring money, but it counts as salary for purposes of retirement for the 2020-2021 school year. Normal tax rates will be applied to the supplement as well as an 18.59% deduction for retirement.
