SENATE BILL: WHEN WAGE FREEZES OCCUR, LAYOFFS MUST BE AVOIDED

A new bill went through the Senate on Monday that says if any staff in a school district agrees to a wage freeze, those saved revenues must go towards avoiding layoffs. The bill passed through the Senate with only two “no” votes. The sponsors of the bill feel the measure gives teachers assurances when negotiating with a school district. The legislation still needs to pass through the Assembly.
