Hillsborough school employees could get pay raise this year

TAMPA — Employees can expect higher pay without higher medical insurance costs if a deal between the Hillsborough County school district and two unions is approved.

The district announced Monday it agreed to raise pay for teachers and service workers. The School Board, the Hillsborough Classroom Teachers Association and the Hillsborough School Employees Federation would have to vote to approve the contracts.

Teacher and support worker pay generally increases from year to year in levels. Economic conditions last year made those raises impossible, although employees did get pay adjustments to help defray the cost of contributing to their pensions, as required by a new state law.

This year's deal calls for increases of one level for teachers and two levels for support workers, including bus drivers and cafeteria and maintenance workers. In addition, teachers would receive a 1½ percent cost-of-living increase.

There are no planned increases in health insurance premiums.

The pay increases would be retroactive to July 1.
