Tentative Contracts Include Wage Freeze for Wyandotte Teachers, Secretaries and Maintenance Staff
The unions for Wyandotte Public Schools teachers, secretaries and maintenance staff have agreed to wage freezes and a high-deductible health plan in latest contracts.
Each of the contracts includes a freeze on wages for each of the three groups of district employees involved.
The unions for all three sets of employees also agreed upon a high-deductible, no-cost health benefit plan, with deductibles that will range from $1,000 to $2,000.
For each contract, a wage and benefit re-opener is in place, allowing for future negotiations to set wage and benefit costs for the 2013-15 school years.
Before agreeing to the contracts on Tuesday night, the board briefly stepped into closed session for discussion, then returned and unanimously approved all three.
