Connecticut Fees ...

Connecticut (CIAC) handles that by automatically increasing officials fees annually based on the average percentage pay increase for teachers across the entire state. Teacher unions (Some NEA, some NFT) in individual towns and cities hammer it out through negotiation, mediation, and binding arbitration (teacher strikes are illegal in Connecticut) and officials get the benefit of such.

We've been doing this for decades. No more annual negotiations in smoke filled back rooms.
