The Mukilteo teachers union is spitting in wind by asking the Mukilteo School District to increase teacher pay. The current labor agreement provides a $1 billion boost this year in teachers pay. With the union’s approval and their signature, the teachers accepted the terms and conditions, which includes their rate of pay.
Perhaps these teachers need to take a class titled “Labor Agreement 101.” Your present contract runs through August 2019. The Mukilteo School District owns you until then. That’s how labor agreements work.
In the past, your battle cry has always been do it for the kids. Today, do it for us isn’t going to work. The McCleary court case has already given you what you wanted, more money.
