As anticipated, the Juneau School District Board of Education voted to accept a three-year contract agreement with Juneau Education Association on Friday after a collective bargaining process that lasted for more than a year.
The motion passed unanimously at the board’s special meeting Friday. There was no discussion or public comment shared during the short meeting.
The contract, which is now in effect, means union members will receive a gradual pay increase over the contract period —2% the first year, 2.5% the second and 3.25% the third — along with increases to the district’s monthly contributions to health premiums. Preparation time will also increase for elementary teachers.
The contract will last until June 30, 2025, and the next round of negotiations is expected to begin in December 2024.
