Contract Ratification Vote Update

Greetings All SEIU-Represented Palm Beach Schools Employees, (AESOP, Regular, ECP-Paraprofessionals, and Supervisory)


Members of the SEIU/AESOP Bargaining units have overwhelmingly voted to approve the 2024 Wage Agreement during a two-week ratification vote at over 100 School District worksites.

Official Results: 

AESOP: 942 Yes, 0 No. (100% Yes)

SEIU Regular:1,286 Yes, 5 No. (99.61% Yes)

SEIU-ECP-Paraprofessionals: 378 Yes, 2 No. (99.47% Yes.)

SEIU Supervisory: 129 Yes, 0 No. (100% Yes.)

Wage Agreement Brief:

After three months of negotiations, the SEIU-Florida Public Services Union Regular, ECP-Paraprofessionals, and Supervisory bargaining committee and the District have reached a tentative agreement on the 2024 wage increase, set to go into effect January 1, 2024.

Similar to last year, to help alleviate wage compression, the across the board increases are based upon full years of service with the District.

0-1.99 Years: 4.5% base wage increase
2-5.99 Years: 5.0% base wage increase
6-9.99 Years: 5.25% base wage increase
10 Years or More: 6.0% base wage increase

Plus, each bargaining unit member will receive a one time payment of 3% or $1,500, whatever is greater, which if we ratify by 12/8, will be paid on 12/22.

In addition, the District will increase the distance between each pay grade from 3% to 3.25%, which will also help alleviate future wage compression between grades.

Furthermore, we will be posting the full tentative agreement on the Union’s website showing changes to Dues Deductions to be compliant with new state laws, a minor procedural change to the Progressive Discipline article, an agreement for the Union and District to form a committee to look at educational incentive awards next year, and an increase to Special Needs Paraprofessionals compensation making it based on a per hour ($2.25) basis rather than an annual stipend ($2,300.)
