NATURE OF THE PROCEEDINGS:
Coleridge Education Association (hereinafter, "Petitioner" or "Association") filed a wage petition on January 30, 2002, seeking resolution of an industrial dispute for the 2001-2002 contract year. The Association is a labor organization formed by teachers employed by Cedar County School District No. 14-0541, a/k/a Coleridge Community Schools (hereinafter, "Respondent" or "District") for the purpose of representation in matters of employment relations. The District is a political subdivision of the State of Nebraska and a Class III school district. The Respondent employed 23 staff members with an FTE of 22.2 for the 2001-2002 school year.
The Commission of Industrial Relations (hereinafter, "Commission") held a Trial on March 20, 2002. At trial, Respondent presented no evidence. Petitioner introduced exhibits 1-13, which were received into evidence without objection. Neither side called any witnesses. Base pay was the only term and condition of employment at issue.
Based entirely on the Petitioner’s Exhibits received at trial, Table 1 sets forth the relevant information for determining the appropriate base salary. The midpoint of the total compensation $798,726 minus the cost of fringe benefits $144,901 equals $653,825, which, when divided by the new total staff index factor of 29.4038, equals a base salary of $22,236 for the 2001-2002 school year.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
All panel judges join in the entry of this order.
Entered April 30, 2002.
