Negotiations Update: February 25, 2019

On Friday, February 15th, the negotiations teams from the California State Employees Association (CSEA) and the school district held a negotiations session.

 

The teams have a conceptual agreement of changes in the following areas - Article 5 - Clothing and Equipment, Article 5 - Bilingual and American Sign Language Stipend, Article 9 - Vacation, and Article 9 - Bereavement Leave.

 

The remaining open areas for negotiations are Article 5 - Salary and Article 8 - Health and Welfare.

 

Before the end of our session, the District offered a 2.75% ongoing, across-the-board increase, retroactive to July 1, 2018. The District also offered to cover the cost of any approved reclassification request, up to the equivalent of a .25% ongoing increase. The District position on Health and Welfare is to remain status quo at this time.  

 

Our next negotiations session is scheduled for March 14th. We look forward to continuing our work together, serving the students of Petaluma City Schools.
