CCEA Bargaining Update #2

BE Follow the Leader!

Thank you so much to ALL of our members how came out and supported our bargaining team.  Your presences is felt and appreciated by the bargaining team!

During the 5th bargaining session on February 15, 2018, the issue of Administrator Intimidation was thoroughly discussed by both sides.  Options that were presented at the last bargaining session will be going through an FBA process.  FBA stands for Feasible, Beneficial, and Acceptable.  The options were tested using the FBA process and were agreed upon by all members of both bargaining teams.  Decisions for options were objective and without judgement.  A small team of 4 bargaining team members (2 from each side – straw design committee) will write language around Administrator Intimidation for the Negotiated Agreement.  This was a lengthy conversation with everyone.  It was a respectful, thoughtful, and open conversation.  David Hart (CFO) also gave a presentation to the collective bargaining team around the projected budget and how different benefit options would affect the budget.

The next bargaining meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, 0arch 6.  The Straw Design Committee will report on their work towards testing options for Administrator Intimidation.  Teacher plan time will also be on the agenda and will begin with story, interests, and options.
