The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) announced today that members of the Alameda Education Association (AEA), which represents certificated employees including teachers, counselors, and nurses, have voted down the tentative agreement with the district announced last week.

The union’s current contract expires at the end of this month.

The agreement would have seen union members given a 3.7 percent salary increase in the next school year.

It also, according to the school district, would have reduced class size to 24:1 in transitional kindergarten and kindergarten, increased flexibility in using leave time, provided adjusted prep times to kindergarten teachers transitioning to a full-day program, and provided a process by which class size overages would be addressed.

In prepared remarks, AEA President Audrey Hyman said that “new language about class overages was a point of contention.”

Roughly 70 percent of AEA members who cast a vote did so in opposition to the tentative agreement.

Bargaining is expected to resume in September.
