Board, CEA Near Agreement

Item: Coeur d'Alene School Board, union may have a deal: School district employees stand to get pay increase/Keith Cousins, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: After two hours of back-and-forth negotiations Thursday - at issue is the distribution of surplus school district funds - the school board and Coeur d'Alene Education Association tentatively agreed on the following:

  • A 2 percent increase to the base salary of certificated district employees.
  • Giving a "step," or a scheduled pay increase based on duration of employment, back to employees who did not receive one in previous school years.
  • A one-time payment of approximately $325 for all benefited employees.

Question: Are you OK with this deal?
