The IPS School Board unanimously approved a collective bargaining agreement with AFSCME and a parallel resolution for non-bargaining staff at the Jan. 29 meeting.

“AFSCME is the biggest public sector labor movement in the country. We support all public sectors workers,” said Vincent Bibbs, the local chapter president.

This pay raise gives most AFSCME workers a 3 percent raise, but gives food service workers a 4 percent raise and gives food center workers a 22 percent increase. It also includes a loyalty bonus of $500 for workers who have been in IPS for 10 years or more.  In IPS, the union represents custodial workers, food service and administrators.

Service workers’ pay has been frozen for the last decade. According to the budget report at this same school board meeting, IPS has cut $1 million from the custodial service budget, and has laid off numerous employees.
