New Contract Reached
By Local 895,
Perry Schools


A new two-year contract between UE Local 895 and the Perry Community Schools effective July 1 increases base pay rates by 45 cents an hour.

The contract also increases life insurance from $30,000 to $40,000, cleans up language with regard to seniority, adds nieces and nephews to bereavement leave, includes holiday hours as time worked for computation of overtime and strengthens union leave language.

A wage and insurance reopener will occur in the second year.

Local 895 members voted overwhelmingly on May 17 to ratify the agreement, one of the best in Iowa for school districts of this size. Local 895 consists of Perry Community Schools support staff.

The negotiating committee consisted of Nancy Sawyer, Kathy Holmes, Bill Clausen, Dennis Leslie and Susan Whitton. They were assisted by UE Intl. Rep. Greg A. Cross.
