It’s a win for the teachers union in Cloquet.

An arbitrator has ordered the Cloquet School District to pay eight teachers for graduate credits they weren’t compensated for in their salaries for 2014.

And spokesperson with the Cloquet chapter of Education Minnesota says the district argued the master’s courses were the same level of basic requirements to teach within the district and should not require and upgrade in the pay scale.

FOX 21’s attempts to reach school district officials for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday.
