The contract between the Altamont Unit 10 Board of Education and the district’s support staff has officially been approved. The Altamont Educational Support Personnel Association, the group representing the support staff, held a special meeting Wednesday night to vote on the agreement. The deal was approved by a vote of 19-2.
The approved contract, which had been tentatively agreed to earlier this week, is for three years, retroactive to last school year.
The terms of the agreement include a total new money increase of 5.6% over the duration of the contact. This includes an hourly wage increase and insurance.
A vote is now needed from the Board of Education to officially ratify the agreement.
