Support Lucia Mar


As many of you know your OEA negotiations team and the District met with a State Mediator on Tuesday, March 17, 2015.  The issue that we are still discussing in this mediation is Equal Employment Rights for our direct hires to the Orcutt Academy Charter K-12 School.  At this point we are still in the mediation process and the process is confidential.  Our next session is scheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2015.  We will share information as we are able to.

Another important piece of information that I would like to share is the Lucia Mar Teachers and their fight for a fair contract.  At this point the Lucia Mar district is actively recruiting substitute teachers through craigs list, the community, Lucia Mar classified association, Santa Maria-Bonita School District, Orcutt Union School District, and other surrounding school districts.  They are advertising to pay those substitutes (those who cross the picket line) $300 a day.  This will surely affect all of us!

Please join me on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 to show our solidarity and support for the Lucia Mar Teachers! The community rally is 4:30-6:30 pm and the LMUSD Board Meeting starts at 7 pm.  Wear Blue!  Please see the flyer below with more details!
