The Board and Neshaminy Federation of Teachers (NFT) met at a negotiating session on Aug 19, 2009 with a newly appointed State mediator. No progress was made on any outstanding issues.
Already one of the highest paid staffs in the entire State, the Union’s proposal would raise the average salary from under $80,000 to over $93,000. Over three years, the estimated salary difference in the two proposals is well over $16 million.
After accounting for existing retirees, the difference in health care costs to the District between the two proposals is about $4 million this year and expected to grow.
No further talks are scheduled at this time.
