Charleston, WV - After a second round of mediation today between the affected parties, a tentative agreement has been reached to settle a dispute regarding wages and benefits of school employees in Boone County. The case stems from the Boone County Board of Education’s decision to eliminate the county salary supplement for teachers and service personnel in 2016.
Representatives of all parties are currently finalizing terms of the agreement, which then must be universally approved. The details of the settlement will be addressed by the Boone County Board of Education on or before February 3, 2020.
Employees were represented by AFT-West Virginia, the West Virginia Education Association and the West Virginia School Service Personnel Association.
