IF YOU ARE LEAVING NOW YOU ARE FINE. IT IS SMOOTH SAILING. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. A FIGHT OVER WAGES RESUMES TODAY AT ST. PAUL PUBLIC SCHOOLS. CAFETERIA WORKERS ARE ASKING FOR $15 AN HOUR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. THEY MAY BE WILLING TO STRIKE IN ORDER GET IT. MARY McGUIRE IS LIVE IN ST. PAUL AS THE TWO SIDES PLAN TO MEET TODAY. GOOD MORNING. Reporter: GOOD MORNING. THESE TWO SIDES WILL MEET TO TRY TO WORK OUT THEIR DIFFERENCES AFTER THE UNION REPRESENTING THE CAFETERIA WORKERS VOTED ON A STRIKE THIS MONTH. THE SCHOOL INSISTS THEY HAVE A TEAM READY TO STEP IN AND HELP PREPARE THE FOOD IN ORDER OF A STRIKE. THE DISTRICT SUGGESTED RAISING THE WAGE IN 2020, BUT THE UNION WANTS THE WAGE RAISE TO START NEXT YEAR. ST. PAUL SCHOOLS BELIEVE IF THEY RAISE THE WAGE NEXT YEAR THEY WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO MANAGE EXPENSES AND CLASSROOM RESOURCES. CAFETERIA WORKERS POINTED OUT THIS YEAR THEY AGREED TO A CONTRACT WITH TEACHING ASSISTANCE TO RAISE THEIR BASE PAY TO $15 AN HOUR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR. RIGHT NOW THE DISTRICT EMPLOYEES 300 CAFETERIA WORKERS. 100 MAKE UNDER $15 AN HOUR.
