For the 2019-2020 budget year, the Florida Legislature approved a K-12 teacher bonus plan called, “The Best and the Brightest” (B&B). The Legislature also specified that, to release these B&B funds to qualifying teachers, bonus plans must be approved at the collective bargaining table. Earlier this year, the UFF-UF bargaining team and the UF Board of Trustees reached an agreement on how to allocate these funds.
But to release these funds to K-12 teachers at P. K. Yonge, the UFF-UF bargaining unit must first vote on the attached Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This MOU describes the terms of UFF-UF’s agreement with the UF BOT.
Vote YES to release these B&B funds to P.K. Yonge teachers; vote NO if you object to releasing these B&B funds to P.K. Yonge teachers. Every other school district in the state of Florida already has released these funds to their teachers!
Note: This special vote is separate from all other compensation. Salary negotiations for FY 2019-2020 were ratified in September 2019, and no offer for FY 2020-2021 has been proffered.
Voting instructions are forthcoming. Thank you for voting!
May 11, 2020: MOU ratified.
