We have been made aware that AACPS is excluding certain Unit 1 employees from the annual stipend for Special Educators and Related Service Providers. The negotiated language agreed to at the bargaining table last year says: “Special educators and related service providers shall be paid an annual stipend of $2,000.”
It is our position that this language should be all inclusive. We are preparing to file a class action grievance on behalf of members to ensure you are paid.
If you did not receive these stipends and believe you should, add your name here.
We will follow up with more information on Friday.
