OEA Negotiations Update - Nov 3, 2017

Orcutt Educators Association 2017-18 proposals side-by-side with OUSD proposals. The District offered its proposals as a package deal; none of the individual proposals from the District can be accepted on its own.  As of November 3, 2017, OEA has rejected the District’s package proposal. Our next bargaining sessions are scheduled for November 13th & 30th. (An earlier version of this chart had an error in the description of the OEA Early Retirement Proposal.)

Salary Schedule adjustment that costs about 1.6% on-schedule and about 1% off-schedule
