ALLENTOWN, PA — East Penn School District custodians and maintenance workers have joined teachers and administrators in offering to take a pay freeze for the upcoming school year, according to The Morning Call.
The district could save nearly $2 million by avoiding pay increases for teachers and administrators, a savings that could increase if the board accepts the offer from the custodians and maintenance workers, the article stated.
According to the article, the union "overwhelmingly approved" the pay freeze proposal.
Under the proposal, maintenance workers and custodians would take a pay freeze next school year, with a one percent pay hike or an increase based on the state-determined 2012 tax increase index, whichever is greater, the article noted.
