Broward Teachers Rally For Raises

Broward teachers will be out in full force at tonight's school board meeting rallying for better pay and health insurance options. Broward Teachers Union president Anna Fusco says they're at an impasse, teachers requested a 4-percent raise and the school board came back with a 2-percent offer. That offer would be retroactive to January, not August when teachers started the year. No matter what happens there will be no sick-outs or strikes, both the Florida constitution and state law make it illegal for teachers to walk off the job. The school board meeting begins at 4:30 this afternoon, teachers are expected to speak out during the public hearing which gets underway at 5 p.m. The meeting is being held at the KC Wright Building, 600 SE 3rd Avenue, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
