Negotiations Update - Impasse - Jan 25th


Orcutt Educator's Association and the Orcutt Union School District have been unable to reach agreement on contract articles governing compensation, working days and hours, term, grievance, and class size.  As a result, we have declared impasse and expect to meet with the district and a moderator early next month.  A key disagreement continues concerning the raise to the salary schedule; the district has not increased its offer of 3% since November, 2015.

The association and the district were able to reach a tentative agreement on new stipends (Article X, Appendix B3) for elementary and junior high robotics advisers ($800 annually), and an MOU for stipends for PLC leads (up to 8) at all sites ($1200 annually).  Additionally, we agreed to an MOU that will add one PD day to the beginning of the year compensated at a member's per diem rate for the 2016-17 school year only.  The PD day agenda will be set with input from the association.  

As always feel free to contact me with questions, comments, and/or concerns.
