Modesto City Schools' 1,300 support staff will vote Aug. 8 on a new three-year contract.
The district's deal with the California School Employees Association Modesto Chapter would restore salaries to pre-recession highs and eliminates furlough days except for preschool staff, according to materials prepared by the union.
Provisions of the contract include:
The deal marks an end to the impasse declared in April when the district was seeking more than 3 percent in permanent salary cuts and a number of other concessions. Since then, the state's higher revenue estimates and a boost in funding from the Local Control Funding Formula have improved Modesto City Schools' bottom line.
CSEA covers most non-teaching district employees, including bus drivers, secretaries, custodians and cafeteria workers.
