New Berlin schools, unions settle pay, benefit dispute

Aug. 27, 2012

A resolution of $7 million in pay and benefit disputes between the New Berlin School Board and three employee unions has been reached, calling for the district to pay $525,000 to employees and retirees.

The disputes spanned four years and the resolution settles all pending litigation and claims between the School District and the three unions - the New Berlin Education Association, the New Berlin Special Education Paraprofessional Association and the New Berlin Clerical Association.

The disputes included wages for school years of 2009-10 and 2010-11; eliminating the sick leave bank; payments to some co-curricular coaches amounting to $21,154; and premium payments made to the district's self-funded health plan. No money will be paid to the unions.

Under 2011 legislation commonly called Acts 10 and 32, school districts are generally no longer required to negotiate wages and benefits. The School Board has set pay since the 2011-2012 school year.
