Previously secret details of Portland teachers contract are now public

Feb 6, 2018 by

Details of the Portland Association of Teachers’ contract deal with the Portland school board became public Monday night ahead of the upcoming board vote to ratify the contract. The terms have been secret until now, but after the union ratified the agreement, the contract was made public.

The board vote Thursday would bring an end to more than two years of contract negotiations between the 4,000-teacher strong union and Oregon’s largest school district.

The proposed contract gives teachers a retroactive and future pay increase that works out to 3 percent for last school year, 2.75 percent for this school year and 2.25 percent for the 2018-2019 school year.

The new terms place limits on class sizes and require the district pay teachers extra if they go over those limits. For example, a kindergarten class that goes over 24 students would require the district to pay that teacher more.
