There are some important bargaining sessions going on between Sarasota County Schools and the teachers’ union, the Sarasota Classified Teacher’s Association.

Among the negotiations include a $12 minium wage for some classified employees and upgrading classifications for bus drivers as well as class aides at Oak Park School that would see wages rise from 90 cents to $3 per hour.

Barry Dubin, the Executive Director of the Sarasota Classified Teacher’s Association, told ABC-7 the negotiations will likely ‘take months.’
