Morgan Hill Unified School District and its classified staff agreed to a new three-year contract that includes a 2 percent pay hike and an increase in healthcare contributions.
The agreement between MHUSD and the Morgan Hill Classified Employees Association, which runs from July 1, 2018 though June 30, 2021, was ratified by the MHUSD Board of Trustees at its Sept. 20 meeting.
MHCEA members approved the agreement Aug. 24.
Negotiators from both sides navigated through 14 different articles in the new contract, including wages, health and welfare and vacation.
The 2 percent pay raise is retroactive to July 1, according to the new terms. The district also increased its healthcare contributions by $1,200 per year for active full-time members from $9,000 to $10,200.
In 2017, the local classified workers, which includes bus drivers, kitchen and office staff, and janitors, decertified from the Service Employees International Union 521. They have more than 300 members employed with MHUSD.
