VEA Bargaining Brief – June 1, 2017

VEA Bargaining Brief- June 1, 2017


We met with the District for the first time since our agreement was ratified in the fall. It was a productive exchange of ideas.



  • The District reports that they have a large pool of qualified, credentialed new hires to begin next school year. We are all looking forward to having positions filled at all levels.


  • An MOU has been signed for Elementary and K-8 Sites to schedule the District and Prep days for next year. The days follow a similar format to last year, with the exception of the first day of school; next year it will be a Teacher Prep Day.


  • We discussed ideas about a new article to add to the contract around just cause/ due process, set our bargaining calendar for next school year, and made commitments for our next meeting in the fall.



Enjoy a well deserved break! Your Bargaining Team looks forward to representing you at the table in the fall!
