Members Ratify Contract!

The Bargaining Team is proud to announce that after 16 months of negotiations we have successfully ratified our contract on Oct. 26, 2017.  Over 55% of our members participated in the process which sets a new record of involvement by our classified chapter and shows the level of involvement that our membership has in obtaining a livable wage and great healthcare.

Recap of what we won:

  • 3.5% Raise to your base salary and retroactive pay back to July 1, 2016
  • $800 Additional contribution to healthcare to create a 90/10 health plan

The School Board gave their final approval on Nov. 8, 2017.  All information has been forwarded to the payroll department and “retro checks” have been completed.

Thank you to the Bargaining Team of Debbie Acosta, Jorge Munguia-Escuen, Lucas Cha, Lupe Martinez, Chris Norman, Roy Mansanalez and Amalia Johns.
