Shaler Area School District and custodial and maintenance union ratify contract agreement

Shaler Area School District and the Teamsters Local Union No. 205, which represents the district’s custodial and maintenance employees, are proud to announce they have signed a new five-year contract.

The new collective bargaining agreement will take effect on July 1, 2016, when the existing contract expires, and continue through June 30, 2021.

The contract includes an additional $0.50 per hour increase for all job classifications, each and every year of the agreement, averaging a 2 percent salary increase. The agreement also increases the employee contributions for health insurance incrementally from 1 percent for individual coverage to 2.25 percent in the fifth year of the contract agreement and from 2 percent to 3.5 percent in the final year of the contract for family coverage. Shaler Area custodial and maintenance employees pay a percentage of their annual salary toward health care.

“We are very proud to be able to announce the ratification of this contract agreement, which was unanimously approved by the Shaler Area membership,” said Ed Boehm, business agent of the Teamsters Local Union No. 205.

Representatives from the district and union met together to come to the agreed upon terms of the new contract agreement.

“We appreciate the collaborative and cooperative spirit of the negotiations to reach an agreement that is fair and equitable while addressing the needs and concerns of all stakeholders in the district,” said Mr. Sean Aiken, Shaler Area superintendent.

Teamsters Local Union No. 205 represents the district’s 52 custodial and maintenance employees. The Teamsters Local Union 205 members ratified the contract on Dec. 28, 2015 followed by the school board’s approval on Jan. 13, 2016. Shaler Area School District has 4,432 students in eight schools.
