Here’s an interesting point I didn’t fit into my article on San Diego Unified administrators considering a collective bargaining agreement: Right now, principals and other school managers get the same salary raises and adjustments as teachers, under a “me too” clause in their memorandum of understanding. That means that when teachers negotiate a salary increase, their supervisors — and supervisors in other departments, such as custodial managers or police administrators — get “the same general salary/wage increase or salary adjustments.”

If administrators choose to form a collective bargaining unit, school managers would start bargaining separately from teachers for their salaries.
