Advanced Degree Differential Chart

The link below is to a pdf chart that shows your advanced degree differential established last payroll year for employees current at that time.  This amount will not change, but will carry forward with you for the remainder of your employment with HISD. 

The differential was calculated based on the amount required at your given step to provide an $1,100.00 raise last year.  That amount will now be added your current step after the 2% raise was factored in as shown in the example.

SB 1968 Defeated!

Our collective voice was successful in fighting back the anti-union forces trying to silence public employees.  Thank you to the many rank and file union members that helped defeat this terrible bill.  So many of our members sent letters to their legislators, testified before committee or made phone calls to their elected officials. 

This issue isn't over yet!  Make not mistake, they will bring it back up again next session.
