  • Update Regarding the Wilson Teacher Contract 
    The Wilson Board of Education and the Wilson Education Association (WEA) have been negotiating for several months in an effort to reach an “early bird” labor agreement.  On October 13, 2015, the Wilson Education Association rejected the below “final, best offer”.  Our goal is to reward the great work of our teachers and at the same time be considerate of our community members. 
    In an effort to keep our community informed, the following items were offered to WEA in that “final, best offer.” Please note: (TA) is tentative agreement; these items were already agreed-upon during earlier negotiations. 
    • 2-year contract (effective 7/1/15 through 6/30/17 (TA)
    • 3.5% increase to salary schedule in Year 1 at a cost of $969,854; 3.4% increase in Year 2 at a cost of $974,931 (Please click here to see the Proposed Salary Schedules). 
    • Increase first year teacher salary to $43,000 over a two-year contract {currently $41,168}
    • Continue a 13% premium share contribution from employees for both years of contract (TA)
      • Effective 7/1/15, employees contribute: 
        • $76.76/month if choosing Single Coverage 
        • $163.50/month for 2-Party Coverage
        • $222.61/month for Family Coverage 
    • Increase life insurance policy to $50,000/employee {currently $25,000} (TA) 
    • Increase Longevity bonus of $2,000 after an employee’s 27th year of service {currently 29thyear} (TA)
    • Increase amount paid to top step employees to $750 for both years of contract {currently $500} (TA)
    • Increase Section 125 Flex Spending option to $2,500/year {currently $2,000} (TA)
    • Increase unused sick days reimbursed at $50/day for up to 125 days upon retirement {currently $45/day for up to 100 days} (TA)
    • Increase the number of family illness days /year to 10 {currently 5} (TA)
    • Include Home & School Visitor certificated employees to bargaining unit (TA) 
    • Effective 6/30/17, district-paid medical benefits cease in June (rather than September) for new retirees (TA)
    • Effective 6/30/17, elimination of M+6 column; employees on that column will be grandfathered {Wilson currently has 12 columns on our salary schedule; the average for Berks County is 8} (TA)
    The Wilson Board of Education is committed to continue to work with our WEA to provide the best possible contract. We hope the contract can be resolved in a timely fashion in order to ensure our attention is focused on what is most important – educating our students.
