Teachers Suing School Districts Over Lack Of Pay Raises

Teachers from three separate Indiana school districts are going to court over pay raises they never received. The lawsuits filed in September against Noblesville Schools, Huntington County Community School Corp, and the Madison Consolidated School Board allege teachers from those districts are entitled to the salary increases under contracts that expired at the end of the last school year.

But the school districts say a new bill passed by the state legislature to limit collective bargaining agreements makes those teachers ineligible for the raises. Indiana State Teachers Association President Nate Schnellenberger argues the teachers‘ contracts expired before the new law took effect, making them eligible for the raises.
