Negotiations Update for June 23 2011

Your negotiations team met with the district yet again on June 23. The district and the team participated in more in-depth discussions regarding the 11/12 budget, as it was presented to the school board this week. The district team shared that there is currently a 6.96% reserve balance in the general fund (3% is required by the state), and an anticipated 4.53% reserve for 11/12.

The CSEA team explored district-proposed options for cutting costs. We also analyzed their proposal to evaluate if it would have a disproportionate effect on classified employees as compared to certificated and management employees. We continue to search for the best way to protect our unit member’s jobs and paychecks.

We have scheduled another negotiations session for Wednesday June 29. We will update you again after that meeting.

Your CSEA negotiations team members,
Allyson Holt, Nancy Lavallee, Cheryl Townsend, Job Suarez, Joan Miller
