Tentative Agreement Reached Between Flint Schools, Unions
A tentative agreement between Flint Community Schools and its unions have been reached according to ABC 12.
In a deal that could save the financially troubled district millions, interim Superintendent Larry Watkins was surrounded by union officials when he made the announcement that the agreement could save over $6 million. The district's deficit is nearly $10 million.
Wages will remain mostly uncut with changes expected to come to health insurance plans, staffing and other areas. To date, schools have been closed, staff laid off and other moves made in an effort to close the gap.
The agreements still have to be ratified by the unions. That could happen as early as next week.
