The Washington Times reported on DCPS' failure to pay teachers on time as part of the new teachers union contract. "According to the contract reached with the Washington Teacher’s Union in December, members who have been working since 2020 will receive retroactive payment for the three years they worked without a contract."
"The payments were scheduled to go out to members on May 19, but administrators now say that they’ll only receive partial payment on that date. According to city officials, “administrative complications” have delayed the full payout for teachers until June 16. The city says that the delay is to make sure that all members receive the correct amount." Read the full article here.
