Update about salary increases.

Dear Members,

“Yes” I have seen the paper and the Union Officers and I have had a flurry
of very excited calls from our members. Many of the members who have
called have not actually read the paper and are hearing rumors. If you read
the paper you will see that the very first sentence reads “Miami-Dade school
administrators have more earning potential under revamped salary schedule.”
That does not mean that 1300 administrators received a 10 to 30% raise.
The fact is that those 1300 administrators have not received anything. The
only people who have received a salary increase is 3 Managerial Exempt
administrators who got promotions. Even unions believe that people should get
raises when they get promotions.

With all the calls the Officers and I have received I put a formal request into the
Labor/Relations department to go over and explain what this article means in
the event I was reading it wrong.

The response is attached.
