2016-2017 Negotiations 3-2-2016

CSEA and the District met for our first day of negotiations for the 2016-17 year. We spent the full day in negotiations, and in addition to issues raised in our respective initial proposals, we also discussed pending issues related to catastrophic leave, job descriptions and personnel matters.

The District proposed language regarding layoffs, and we had a discussion with respect to how the CSEA units vote to ratify the contract.

CSEA proposed language on hours and overtime, leaves, safety, pay and allowances, health and welfare. CSEA’s economic proposal included changes to the salary schedules, range placements and health benefit contributions which collectively totaled over 20%.

The parties will be confirming next dates for negotiations.
