PSEA’s Latest Bargaining Updates

April 6, 2017

Catch up on our progress in negotiations. PSEA Bargaining Update 3 Unit I. PSEA Bargaining Update 1 Unit II Share this:

PSEA/LSS Collaborative

January 19, 2017

PSEA leadership reached out to Learning Support Services (LSS) to establish a method of communication between our respective offices. PSEA feels that LSS is “where the action is” and where district initiatives are designed and rolled out to the sites. To keep a consistent loop of communication, PSEA and LSS the PSEA/LSS Collaborative.

We will meet monthly to “coordinate the work of PSEA and LSS in alignment with district goals and initiatives, support non-management classified employees, and ultimately enhance student learning. We will engage in collaborative conversations to identify key resources, jointly communicate with stakeholders, and provide valuable professional learning opportunities to all non-management classified staff and promote the success of each staff member.”

LCAP – Your Input Needed

January 19, 2017

LSS has initiated a new process for gathering stakeholder input in preparation of the annual Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP). The new process will rely on data gathered by Site Teams consisting of the Principal, a teacher representative, classified representative and parent representative.

LSS rolled out the process on January 10th and 11th, training teams from around the District on assessing our LCAP “actions and services” and gathering the site’s feedback. Each Site Team will design the method of data gathering, and it must include all stakeholders.

PSEA has sought for several years to ensure the voice of classified staff is reflected in the District’s comprehensive LCAP. We hope the new method will be a success and encourage all classified employees to participate in your site’s LCAP meetings.

Labor Relations-Work Boot MOU

January 19, 2017

The Labor Relations team made significant progress on the Memorandum of Understanding regarding uniforms, safety glasses and work boots for those members who require them. We are close to signing off and are verifying which unit members currently require boots. The amount of the work boot reimbursement has been raised to $135 and we have learned that uniforms may be considered as “PERS-able” compensation, adding to the income used to compute a retiree’s monthly retirement benefit by CalPERS.

Sunshine Agreement for Unit II

January 19, 2017

A Sunshine proposal opening the remainder of the bargaining agreement for Unit II has been submitted for the January 17 school board meeting. We Sunshined a portion of the Health and Welfare Article in October so we could make improvements by the onset of Open Enrollment. The District will also present their Sunshine proposal on the 17th. Once through with the formalities (the District’s proposal requires two readings), we will be able to start negotiations. PSEA seeks to make improvements to the Unit II contract that will more closely mirror that of Unit I wherever there is a benefit in doing so, as well as address specific concerns identified by members in the recent bargaining survey.

Negotiation Progress

January 13, 2017

PSEA’s Unit I negotiations are progressing slowly. January is normally the month we present a Sunshine proposal for successor negotiations, but we’re still working on the current contract. We seem to be stuck on Articles 5 and 9.

On Article 5, Work Day-Week-Year, PSEA would like to see employees who are consistently picking up extra hours on a timesheet given a contract reflecting those hours. We’d like to stop the practice of using the 18th day “loophole” to keep employees from triggering into a higher hourly contract, while preserving the opportunity for employees to work extra hours. On Article 9, Leaves, we are apart on the use of accrued sick leave when taking short term leave for family needs. There has not been any offer from the District on wages.

We’ve asked for financial information so we can formulate our proposal for wages, but have not yet received it.
