CCEA Bargaining Update #3

BE Follow the Leader!

Thank you so much to ALL of our members who came out and supported our bargaining team.  Your presence was felt and appreciated by the bargaining team!

During the 4th & 5th bargaining sessions on March 6 & 7, 2018, language around Administrator Intimidation was drafted and presented by both CCEA and CCSD bargaining team members.  Such language included annual policy training for all building ARs and Principals, teacher communication, and building plans.  The draft also included a definition of administrator roles to include COSA, TOSA, and PASS.  If the issue of administrator intimidation can’t be handled at the building level between the admin team, ARs and member, then CCEA president and district employee relations director will make a final determination.  The straw design committee that drafted the language will meet again to add more specifics into the policy.

Teacher planning time was the next issue presented at the bargaining table.  Both teams helped develop the story of teacher plan time.  CCEA members and CCSD principals shared daily schedules at various levels and options were discussed in regards to plan time.

The next bargaining session is Tuesday, March 13 from 4-8 pm at ESC.  The team will evaluate options for teacher plan time and make decision regarding those options.  If there is time, the team will start to draft the story around 21st Century Partnerships.
