LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Graduate teaching assistants at the University of Kansas could receive a raise next year.
The university and a union representing the graduate students approved a contract raising the minimum wage for teaching assistants by $1,000 a year, an increase of about 7.7 percent.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the new contract will increase the minimum salary from $13,000 to $14,000 for the 2014-2015 school year. The minimum would increase to $14,250 for 2015-16.
The Kansas Board of Regents is expected to vote on the contract at its June meeting.
