Committee member Gina Fuller, who voted against the contract, told the Sun, “The elimination of (two) steps did nothing to adjust payroll in any way, shape or form. Not only are they receiving increases each year, the actual salary for each step increased. The point of eliminating steps wasn’t achieved in this.”
All four committee members who voted for the contract were supported by the teachers union in their election campaigns, according to the news report.
These are the types of anti-taxpayer deals that develop when the union elects its employers.
