Palatine Custodial and Maintenance Workers Approve New Contract


The Custodial and Maintenance Workers at Community Consolidated School District #15 in Palatine have overwhelmingly approved a four-year contract extension.

The contract includes pay raises as well as significant increases in stipends and allowances available to skilled maintenance workers.

“When many worked from home during the pandemic,  we risked our lives to come in every day,” said Bob Braun, Head Custodian. “The district recognized our commitment to keeping students and staff safe and that resulted in a better contract for all of us.”
