Teachers Face Mandatory Pay Cuts

January 7th, 2009 by flanews

The states budget problems could soon fall on the backs of teachers.

Lawmakers passed a provision through a committee yesterday that would require schools to cut salaries in order to balance budgets in districts whose reserves fall below 2 percent. The Florida Education Association is outraged at the news.

It makes a joke of the entire collective bargaining law thats in our constitution. It makes a joke of the negotiation teachers have every year with school district to come up with pay and working conditions. It kind of makes a joke of all of it, said FEA Spokesman Mark Pudlow.

While the provision made it through a House committee, the issue isnt on the Senates agenda.
