The contract with the Administrators and Supervisors Association of Rochester (ASAR) includes retroactive 2.5% pay raises for the past three years, including the current year, when the union has been without a contract. It also has 3% annual raises for the next two years and ends in June 2024.
“Our administrators inspire our scholars, engage families and community, and support, develop and encourage our staff,” Superintendent Lesli Myers-Small said in a statement. “I am pleased that we have come to an agreement that honors and respects our ASAR members.”
The ASAR deal is RCSD’s third labor agreement in as many months. In July it signed a one-year extension of the Rochester Teachers Association’s current contract and in August it signed a three-year contract with its non-educators’ union, BENTE.
