Negotiations Update #3

The district asked us to come back to the table; so we met today, Tuesday, July 12, 2016.

After being at the June TRUSD Board meeting and learning that the Administrative Certificated, Administrative Classified, and Confidential staff members had been given a raise for the 2015-16 and 2016-17 school years, we believed TRUSD was ready to make us a viable offer.

However, we were greatly disappointed!

Their offer included:

  • 2% raise for the 2016-17 school year
  • 2% off salary schedule (one-time bonus)
  • 1% off salary schedule for professional development (6 hours completed prior to Dec. 31 and 6 hours completed before May 31)
  • Negotiations to be closed for the 2017-18 school year

Clearly these proposals were not acceptable to the team.  When other district employees are receiving 5% raises, 2% for the people who deliver the instructional programs is not an adequate proposal.  Closing negotiations for the 2017-18 school year, when the entire contract is open for adjustments, is not an adequate proposal.

We will meet again after school begins. Keep a good thought, and watch for the organizing updates.

Respectfully submitted,
