Negotiations Update


Your OEA negotiations team is pleased to report that, effective upon ratification of the Tentative Agreement signed today, all members of the Orcutt Educators Association will have equal Education Code rights “for purposes including but not limited to probationary status, discipline, reduction in force and dismissal.”

In addition, the Association and District agreed to a two-year trial of banking minutes to allow for a weekly hour of collaboration time at every site. Schedules will be adjusted to lengthen the school day by up to 15 minutes per day to allow for that hour, and that additional time will be compensated through a temporary pay increase of two percent during the life of the MOU.

This agreement will allow all of the contract improvements since 2012 to become part of the official Collective Bargaining Agreement, with an expiration date of June 30, 2015.

It is important that you come to hear the details, ask questions and do your due diligence as an OEA member, and vote at the General Membership meeting on Tuesday, May 12, at 4 p.m., in the OAHS Multipurpose Room.

Please feel free to contact if you have any questions!

President, Orcutt Educators Association
