The same study used to justify $270,000 in retroactive raises to Minneapolis Public Schools administrators could be used by the district to cut the compensation of its unionized staff.
District leaders say the report, which found that hundreds of employees are paid above-market rates, will be used in contract talks as the district seeks pay and benefit freezes and other concessions from union-represented staffers.
The study, compiled by Public Sector Personnel Consultants, found that 30 percent of union-represented employees, excluding teachers, are paid above a maximum proposed salary plan, costing the district more than $6 million per year.
"Unions just get more and more and more," said Matthew Weatherly, president of the Arizona-based company. "Jobs don't move that way in the market."

"The study found that pay for the clerical workers of Council 5 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees had the largest costs above the maximum scale, at more than $1 million per year"
I guess we've got money to burn.

They’ll know they cut the pay too much if they have openings they can’t fill with qualified candidates.
