2 Carroll school unions negotiate 2 percent raises


Teachers and other groups of Carroll County school employees would receive a 2 percent across-the-board raise under the terms of tentative agreements between two school employees unions and the Board of Education.

The Carroll County Education Association, which represents about 1,300 teachers, sent the proposal to its members Monday after two months of negotiating with the school board bargaining team.

"I think it's the best we can get," said Ralph C. Blevins, president of the teachers union. "I never feel that teachers are getting paid for everything they do in their jobs, but that's true everywhere, not just in Carroll County."

The Carroll Association of School Employees, which representing 350 instructional assistants, secretaries and licensed practical nurses, also has reached a tentative agreement with the school board that would give its employees a 2 percent raise.

The agreement is to be released to members this week.

Both unions will vote on the proposals this month.
