The Hutchinson School Board Tuesday night approved a two-year contract with the Local 284 Employee Union/Custodians and Maintenance Workers.
Director of Business and Finance Donna Luhring says the total salary increase for the two-year package amounts to a 4.64 percent increase.
Luhring says the negotiation process was relatively easy in that union representatives came in and were very realistic on what the school board would like to have seen in the settlement.
Luhring says in her entire career, it’s the first time a settlement occurred with just one meeting and thanked those involved. Luhring says it’s usually a more drawn out process.
