2015 Bargaining Update #1

The Association and the District have met three times thus far in this round of negotiations.

The following items are open.

  • Salary
  • Fringe Benefits
  • Retirement
  • Duty Hours
  • Class Size 
  • Work Year

The Association put a salary proposal on the table.
The District's counter proposal was in our estimation "disappointing."
The District also wants to wait until Governor Brown's May revision of the proposed state budget for fiscal 2015-2016. For specifics, please attend the School Board Meeting on May 14th. 

The Association has proposed changes to health benefits in the form of the Percentage Plan as discussed at the May 4th General Membership meeting regarding insurance

The Association has proposed improvements to the "District Incentive Retirement Option." The District is considering the proposal.

The calendar for 2015-2016 has been approved by the School Board. It contains 185 work days, including two staff development days.

Join us on May 14th to support the bargaining team and to hear a presentation to the School Board from the team.
