NAPLES, Fla -- The Collier County School District and teacher's aides are one step closer to reaching an agreement on pay raises.
Last week we told you the aids were upset because they did not receive an offer that was comparable to the 7% raise teachers receipt. But, Monday night during a negotiation meeting a representative with the union told WINK News progress was made.
"I think they should've thought about this stuff beforehand and made sure everyone was treated equally right out of the gate at 7%, but I think they realize the impact it was having on these employees and they made adjustments, so that's encouraging," says CCEA Executive Director Jonathan Tuttle.
The union plans to meet this week to discuss the offer. The two sides could settle as early as next week.
