Last night, UEU met with UCSN for the third of four sessions this week in our attempts to completing negotiations before the current contract extension expires at midnight on Sunday, October 2.
We heard counter proposals from UCSN about paid leave time, pay, benefits, work day, work year and layoff policies. Currently, the bargaining team is busy working on counter proposals to present today in an effort to reach an agreement on a contract that will work for all of our members. We were pleased with progress regarding high school work day and some forms of leave time. However, we were disappointed with their economic proposals, their refusal to acknowledge teacher voice and protections on class size. These items leave us far apart from reaching an agreement.
Please stand by for announcements later in the day regarding upcoming actions and next steps.
