September 2016 Bargaining Update

To the Best Union Members in the World,

There are 5 bargaining meetings left before we hit our October 2nd deadline.  Everyone needs to be aware of our challenges and how you can get involved in our upcoming action this week. Our Bargaining Team has been working themselves to the bone to give you a good contract, now we need to tell UCSN it's time to get with the program! 

Key Challenges:

  • UCSN refuses to improve its economic offer, forcing staff to accept a diminished step schedule, raising staff insurance costs and eliminating cost of living increases.  

  • UCSN has refused to reduce the number of work days unless we give up Personal Leave Days

  • UCSN will only reduce the High School work day slightly if it can lay off teachers.

  • UCSN refuses to reform its layoff policies and reliance on unfair STRIVE scores.

  • UCSN has made NO meaningful movement to improve working conditions or protect staff compensation.  

  • UCSN does not see the need for caps on the number of students in our classrooms, they want to leave their options open to have more than 32 children in a class.

UPCOMING CALL TO ACTION:

Attend the UCSN Board of Directors

Wednesday September 14 at 6:00 pm

Veteran's Memorial Campus 4248 W 47th Street

BE PRESENT, INVITE PARENTS & COMMUNITY MEMBERS, AND TELL THE BOARD THAT WE DESERVE A FAIR CONTRACT!!
