The Muskego-Norway School Board is now negotiating teacher pay with the Lakewood United Educators, which recertified as a union and went on to win approval from a majority of teachers in the district.
Both are required under the state's new public employee bargaining rules. And negotiations are much different, too.
The maximum raise the board can give is tied to the consumer price index, which for approximately the last calendar year was up 1.64 percent, according to a recent determination by the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission. It looks like the CPI will be more than 3 percent this year, Superintendent Joe Schroeder said.
Under the state's Act 10 new rules, the negotiations cannot involve benefits or working conditions as they have in the past.
