Trustees hold tight with wages
Vernon School District trustees have frozen their wages again.
For the second year in a row, trustees have approved a zero increase for their indemnity.
“Unless our employees get a raise, we will not take one either,” said Bill Turanski, chairperson.
Government policies have led to unionized staff not receiving an increase in their wages.
The chairperson receives $13,600 a year while there is $12,100 for the vice-chairperson and $10,600 each for the trustees.
