New Union Deal At Miami-Dade Schools To Begin Push Toward $15 Hourly Minimum Wage

By William Gjebre, FloridaBulldog.org, Special to SouthFloridaReporter.com, Nov. 18, 2015 – A tentative agreement between Miami-Dade Public Schools and the union representing its general employees raises the minimum pay for some of district’s lowest paid workers to $10 an hour, marking what a top union official says is the start of a drive to obtain a minimum hourly wage of $15.

The deal also provides for an immediate average pay hike of about four percent to the district’s food service employees, custodians, bus drivers and other workers.

Negotiators for the Miami-Dade school system and the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, Local 1184 reached the agreement Nov. 13. It goes to the School Board for approval today.
