Redlands Unified Reaches Agreement With Teachers Unions

Redlands Unified teachers and staff will see retroactive 3% pay raises under a new contract approved by the Board of Trustees last week.

The agreement, reached Nov. 12, followed months of protests and bargaining.

Redlands Education Support Professionals Association (RESPA) President Gladys Kershall described it as “bittersweet.”

“For the majority, those whose annual wages are from $7,000 to $25,000, 3%, it really doesn’t bring them up to speed with the cost of living,” she told Redlands Daily Facts

The agreement also increased benefits for both teachers and classified employees.

For classified workers, the increased wages and benefits will cost $1,308,553 annually. The annual cost of the teachers’ pay and benefits bump comes out to $4,139,895.32.
