Madison School District, teachers union at an impasse over raise


August 22, 2019

The Madison School District and its teachers union are at an impasse over the size of a raise for teachers this school year, and a School Board member is alleging district administrators could be skirting state law by privately suggesting board members reject the union’s demand.

Madison Teachers Inc. is asking for the largest base-wage increase the district can offer under 2011’s Act 10, or 2.44%, and has rejected the district’s proposed 2.32% bump, arguing that years of flat base wages and higher employee costs for benefits have eaten into teacher compensation.
