Canfield teachers agree to pay cut

Published: Wed, September 15, 2010 @ 10:59 p.m.


Canfield teachers have agreed to take a pay cut for the 2010-11 school year.

“They understand the hardship of this district,” schools Superintendent Dante Zambrini explained at Wednesday’s board of education meeting. “This saves $130,000 for the district.”

In addition to 1 percent pay cut, the Canfield Education Association also agreed to an increase in health care premiums.

Also Wednesday, the board officially welcomed eight new employees.

I see the recession is finally catching up with the rich suburbanites.

1%...this is nothing more then grandstanding for the November levy. 1% of a $45,000.00 salary is $450.00, hardly a sacrifice.

What STEP increase did they get this year ???? They may have taken a 1% pay cut, but they also may have gotten an annual STEP increase of 4% to 5%. The vindicator should ask if this is part of their bargaining agreement before they write this article.

I am a teacher. I need to respond to a few comments. First, Censoredship, please do compare my salary with other citizens who have my level of education. Also, add into that the $700 I had to pay this past summer for taking more classes, the $1000 I will pay this fall for taking additional classes and the $26,000 in student loans I owe for getting my Master's Degree, which teachers are required to acheive before their 10th year of teaching. Also, to Frank, not all of us get STEPS. I won't be eligible for another step for 4 years. I understand the economy is tough right now and we all must make sacrifices, but it kills me that these teachers took a pay cut and people are still complaining about them. As for the 8 new employees, I am sure most are replacing teachers who have left. There may be new positions needed in order to give your children a good education and/or to fufill state or federal requirements. Boards of Education do not add positions without a good reason!

Just a little information- All 8 teachers replaced teachers who retired or moved- there were no additional positions. I am also interested that people are distressed to read that teachers took a pay cut. OK- you don't feel like it was big enough- but the fact is, it was a voluntary cut in a year they were due to get a pay increase. They actually gave up more than the 1% because they are paying more for health benefits as well. Would you rather they received the increase that had previously been bargained?? I'm just askin??!

One more thing. There are a lot of comments that a 1% salary cut is not a big deal. I bet that if the Vindy reported that the teachers got a 1% raise (instead of a 1% cut), those same people would not be saying that a 1% raise is no big deal. They would be outraged that the teachers got a 1% raise!

The teachers DID NOT take a pay cut. They took a 1% LESS PAY RAISE!!!!!! They still got a 2% pay raise as well as additional benefits. Get your facts straight people and stop letting that idiot of a superintendant miss guide the public. Also, stop feeling sorry for the teachers, their fine!

bdmn_resident, your Master's and additional classes also get you higher up on the pay scale.

Is this a permanent pay cut? Or just like the State workers who made a temporary sacrifice the last few years.
