A hearing examiner for the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board has ruled the Loyalsock Township School District engaged in an unfair labor practice when it failed to release the salary scale the district and teachers’ union agreed upon in the final contract.
The two sides announced a tentative accord on an agreement that included a 17-step pay scale for district teachers. But when the district presented the final draft contract for ratification, it didn’t contain the salary scale.
The teachers’ union, the Loyalsock Township Education Association, repeatedly asked for the scale. When the district failed to produce it, the union filed the unfair labor practice charge.
Since the district could not show it included the scale in any correspondence with the union, the hearing examiner sided with the teachers.
