On Friday, February 2008, we ratified the new contract. The meeting which was held at the boardroom of the ESC building was a great success.
We had a steady stream of participants through out the day with the majority joining the E- board for lunch. We had an especially good turn out from Custodial and Maintenance. The E-board were glad to see and meet so many of them. The Pizza lunch provided was very good and we all had a nice time, filled with lively discussion and camaraderie.
The atmosphere was on the whole cheerful and upbeat despite the concerns for the upcoming year. There was general discussion of the economic situation that faces California and the unit members were encouraged to write the Legislature and the Governor to urge them not to make the harmful cuts to education. I also encourage the Unit Members to go to the school board meetings, and to interface with the public to help us to forestall the Cuts to Education.
After all the Votes were tallied the new contract was ratified by 97% .
Many Thanks to all of you, who could brave the weather and come out to support your Classified Family. I hope to see you all in the coming year and Please continue to check the website as we grow . We are Planning many events in the coming months.
Chapter 293, President.
