The district and the union signed a three-year agreement in August, 2015, which gave CSEA 860 the right to re-open salary and other contract articles for the 2016 to 2017 and 2017 to 2018 school years.
Under the terms of the tentative agreement announced Friday, members of CSEA 860 will receive an on-going 3.11% raise in salary, retroactive to July 1, 2016.
The contract also included provisions that:
- Ease the creation of work calendars
- Facilitate job postings and employee training
The signing of the tentative agreement closes the bargaining on the re-opened articles in the contract. The two teams will meet again on December 1 to continue their negotiations on job descriptions for all of the unit’s classifications.
The Board of Education ratified new agreements with the Alameda Education Association (which represents the district’s teachers, nurses, counselors, and speech and language pathologists) in early November and with CSEA 27 (representing office/technical workers and paraprofessionals) in June.
The next step is for CSEA 860 members and AUSD’s Board of Education to vote on whether to ratify the current tentative agreement.
