Schools, union tentative deal goes to vote

After months of negotiations, the Pasco County School District has reached tentative contract agreements with its instructional and support staffs for the current school year. Representatives from the administration and the United School Employees of Pasco signed off on the deals late Monday after completing a handful of final items. The sides had already reached terms on financial issues, such as another year without pay raises, back in the fall. They finished off the details on how to implement new employee evaluations earlier this month. All the details are posted on the USEP website at http://tinyurl.com/usep2012. The agreements next go to the School Board and the USEP membership for ratification. The voting dates have not been scheduled.
