Tentative Agreement Reached
Posted May 20, 2015

The terms of the tentative agreement:

  • Increase district maximum health and welfare contribution by $1000 to $8500 for active employees effective July 1, 2016, an
    increase of 13.3%
  • Increase district maximum health and welfare contribution by $1000 to $8000 for retirees effective July 1, 2016, an increase of
    14.3%
  • Allow retirees to use benefits to cover vision plans. Previously, vision plans were not covered.
  • Allow retirees to use benefits to cover spouse, domestic partner, and eligible dependents. They were previously not included.
  • Links future increases in the retiree benefits cap to increases in the active benefits cap so that the two caps will move up in
    tandem, separated only by $500
  • Creation of a new article (Article XXIII - Discipline) to guide the district's behavior when disciplining unit members, ensuring
    unit members' rights in the discipline process including the right to a verbal warning, a progressive plan, timelines, and the
    right to grieve if the discipline process is not followed correctly
  • Revised 2016-17 calendar which moves Spring Break to March
  • Creation of the 2017-18 calendar

A General Meeting will be held Tuesday, May 26th to allow members the opportunity to discuss and ask questions about the TA.
