Local 865 Reaches
Two Contracts
With Glenwood Schools

Two contracts, described by many UE members here as the best achieved since organization of their local union three years ago, were ratified overwhelmingly by Local 865 members on July 12. The one-year agreements with the Glenwood Community School District cover teacher associates and aides and kitchen and custodial staff.

Improvements include a 40-cent, across-the-board salary increase and a raise in the shift differential. This is a 6.09 percent increase, which far exceeds the District’s allowable budget growth, based on enrollment.

The contracts increase the amount the District pays towards family health insurance.

To achieve fairness on the job, new language requires the employer to pay kitchen workers who fill in for the kitchen manager an additional $1 an hour.

And new language gives teachers’ aides and associates at Kid’s Place (a child care center) the same personal leave days as all other aides and associates in the District.

The UE Local 865 negotiating committee consisted of Pres. Gene Sheets, Vice Pres. Jeannie Wagner, Treas. Kim Chambers, Sec. Juanita Chaney, and stewards Margaret Crawley and Patti Briels. They were assisted by Intl. Rep. Greg A. Cross.
