The Glendale school board Tuesday approved a 14.5% pay raise for district nurses, counselors and speech therapists, ending an 18-month contract dispute with the 44-member Glendale Support Services Assn.
The new contract, which covers the 1985-86 school year, also includes a one-time payment equal to 9.6% of the annual salary for nurses and speech therapists. Counselors, who work fewer days than other members of the association, will receive a lump-sum payment equal to 6.7% of their annual salary.
The group has been without a contract since June, 1984. The raise also is intended to compensate the group for the 1984-85 school year, school district officials said.
"We're certainly glad that the ordeal is over," said Don King, a representative of the association. "But we feel that the issue of comparable pay was not resolved."
