Tentative Agreement for 2018 negotiations

Tooele County School District and Tooele Education Association have reached a Tentative Agreement on 2018 negotiations.

Thanks, in part, to a patron approved voted levy in November 2017, the beginning salary on the certified employee salary schedule will be increased from $37,000 to $42,000 beginning next year. Last year, the increase went from $33,142 to $37,000. All employees (each level) on the new certified employee salary schedule will receive this minimum $5,000 raise. In addition to this, each certified employee who has completed at least six or more years of in-district service as a certified employee will receive an additional two levels or $2,000. The district anticipates covering increase costs to employees, although minimal changes may be made to selected plan(s).
