SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A teachers union has sued a northwest Louisiana school system, saying a $1,000 pay supplement discriminates against women, older workers and disabled people. The Caddo Parish School Board approved the stipend for full-time employees who were present for at least 90% of their scheduled workdays during the 2020-21 school year. Red River United president Jackie Lansdale says that's unfair to those who had work interruptions such as a pregnancy or emergency surgery. The Caddo Parish School District says the union has been spreading “erroneous and false” information about the supplement. It says district officials don't comment on pending litigation but look forward to a court ruling.
