LANCASTER, PA — With the school district asking the custodial union for concessions, at least 85 jobs are in danger, according to the Intelligencer Journal.
Support staff from the School District of Lancaster (SDL) is expected to vote on a pay freeze that could potentially save the jobs of at least 85 colleagues, the article stated.
According to the article, on the table is a two-year pay freeze in response to the district’s proposal to hire and outside company to handle custodial services.
The SDL has asked their American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) members to renegotiate their contract and relinquish a three percent pay increase, which would save the district around $1.3 million for the next two years, the article noted.
