2.5% raises take effect May 14

The salaries of UFT-represented city Department of Education employees will increase by 2.5% effective May 14, 2020.

The increase will first be reflected in the May 29 paycheck for pedagogues, H-bank employees and all paraprofessionals. Pedagogues who work per diem or per session will see the 2.5 percent pay rate in the June 3 paycheck, while hourly H-bank employees will have the increases reflected in their June 17 checks.

The first paychecks that include the raise will also include arrears reflecting the increases back to May 14.

The final pay increase negotiated as part of the 2018 DOE-UFT contract, a 3% raise, will take effect on May 14, 2021.

Also, as part of the prior 2014 DOE-UFT contract, eligible UFT-represented employees will receive in October, 2020, the final lump-sum payment of 25% of the increased take-home pay they would have earned had they received 4% raises in 2009 and 2010. With this payment, eligible members will have received 100 percent of the money they were owed.
