Union, school system reach deal over paraeducators

Tentative contract includes retroactive raises

April 11, 2011|By Erica L. Green, The Baltimore Sun

About 3,000 paraeducators and other professional staff represented by the Baltimore Teachers Union will receive pay raises and more vacation time under a tentative deal struck by the union and city school system.

The union announced Monday that the Paraprofessionals and School Related Personnel chapter of the BTU — which includes classroom assistants, teacher's aides, accountants, secretaries and office staff — will receive raises retroactive to July 1, 2010, and more holidays off. Members who do not work in a school will also be able to take a spring break.

The union will not release any more details until the contract is presented to its members, according to a spokeswoman, who said that a ratification date has not yet been set.
