COPS Metro Wins Raises for Lowest Paid Alamo College Workers

In a win that COPS / Metro is calling “a beginning,” the Board of the Alamo (Community) Colleges approved wage raises for its lowest paid workers including an $11.50 minimum for full-time employees.  This represents a $1.38 / hour raise  for approximately 49 long-time housekeeping staff now making the lowest wage.

The district will also increase pay to $10 / hour for 700 part-time and temporary employees.

COPS leaders say they want these raises to continue to the level that Bexar County is implementing, and to include contracted workers as well.
