Summary of 2015 Negotiations Settlement – Language and Financial 11/18/2015 – Final Contract and salary schedules will be posted as soon as they are availablePosted: November 18, 2015 in Announcements
The Summary of 2015 Negotiations Settlement has been posted under the Contract information tab. The district is updating the Collective Bargaining Agreement, CBA, including salary schedules. After the agreement has been updated and proofread by the association and district, it will be updated on this site. In regards to section 10.6, paper statements will continue to be given out for the time being until computers that are accessible to ESP staff are placed in all buildings.
In an effort to have a more timely response to questions and concerns, we are turning off commenting on this site. This website is maintained by an AEA volunteer and not officers or building representatives. Please direct specific questions regarding negotiations or the PN committee to Edie Banks. General union questions should directed to your building representatives. Thank you for your support and suggestions.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to come to the membership meeting. We understand and share association members’ frustration with the salary and some of the working conditions in our district. The PN committee and executive committee have listened to your questions, suggestions, concerns and criticisms. We continue to be mindful of your feedback and will work to fine tune the process.
All AEA members are encouraged to attend school board meetings. Meetings are the the third Tuesday of each month. The next meeting is Tuesday November 17 at 7:00 pm, at the Board office. School board members need to be more informed concerning working conditions and the challenges school staff face on a regular basis.
There have been many questions about the Association’s counter offer that the board has tentatively accepted. The association was able to save insurance benefits for 2 years. The financial package information will be given at the membership meeting Thursday, November 12 at 4 pm at Alton High School.
Many members have asked why the information is not given to members in advance. At this time, a general membership meeting is the best way to answer specific questions about the offer and the bargaining process.
