South Bend teachers union could take big step to ease budget woes with vote Thursday night

A vote Thursday will determine whether South Bend teachers will forgo pay raises for the next two years to help the corporation's bottom line.

At a negotiation session last month, the teacher's union bargaining team came up with a plan for "no pay raises" for this year or next.

Teachers’ contracts had asked for raises for this past school year through 2011, but this week's vote by the teachers is expected to change that.

The decision is expected Thursday night as teachers vote on the plan at Clay High School.

It’s believed the move would save the district thousands of dollars.
