Local 274 Contract
With Literacy Project
Receives Satisfactory Grade
The members of amalgamated UE Local 274 employed by the
Literacy Project recently approved their second-ever contract.
The bargaining unit consists of teachers and teacher
coordinators; union members teach adult education, including reading, computer
skills, math and other subjects.
The Literacy Project is primarily funded by a combination of
federal and state grants. As a result, wage increases are negotiated yearly.
In this contract teachers receive a $1.10 hourly wage increase; coordinators,
$1.50 an hour. The contract contains an increase in the sick-leave bank and
other improvements in contract language.
The committee was comprised of Judith Kocik, Margaret
Anderson and Brenda Koons. They were assisted by UE Field Org. Paul
