The District and CSEA met for a third day of 2021-22 contract negotiations on Tuesday, July 13.

The parties discussed CSEA’s proposed reconfigured salary schedule, including the ongoing costs to the District. The parties then brainstormed some possible revisions to the proposed reconfiguration that would reflect a healthy compensation increase for unit members while allowing the District to remain fiscally prudent.

CSEA presented counterproposals on the pending language items, reflecting some agreement with the District’s proposals but maintaining its proposals on a number of items. The District is working diligently to cost out various proposals that meet both parties’ interests, and will present a comprehensive package proposal at the parties’ next meeting.

The parties reached agreement on the term of the agreement, the performance evaluation instrument, the reclassification/reallocation form, and layoff/reemployment.

The parties meet again on July 23 for a fourth day of negotiations.
