Teachers Union Presses Baltimore County On Raises

(Towson, MD) -- The Teachers Association of Baltimore County is putting pressure on the Baltimore County Public Schools over the issue of pay raises.

TABCO says it is delivering an open letter to the Baltimore County Board of Education demanding county officials fully fund negotiated salary increases for thousands of county public school employees.

The School Board is calling on the county government to approve $50 million in budget surplus funds to pay for employee pay raises during the 2023 fiscal year.

County Executive Johnny Olszewski says he supports paying teacher and staff more money but directed BCPS to find the funding within its existing yearly budget of more than $2 billion.
