Nothing has changed. The district and union are still negotiating the layoffs of classified personnel. This process will most likely continue into July or even August before there is a resolution. The union is still standing behind NO REDUCTION OF HOURS. Each position is being considered individually.

However, since I was the only one present it also afforded me the opportunity to speak directly with Kenny Wilson, an Orange County CSEA representative.

The CSEA and District negotiating teams met on April 9, 2008 from 9:15 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
The CSEA team presented the district with an early retirement proposal we feel could make the district’s proposed lay-offs and reductions unnecessary. The district has asked for more information and agreed to explore this item further in our next negotiation sessions.
