Bargaining Update
October 22, 2019
 
 

The GGEA bargaining team has met with the district on the following dates: September 19, September 26, October 3, and October 14. Topics of discussion included Special Education, Class Size, Hours of Employment, and Wages.

With regard to Special Education we are confident that we will be able to negotiate additional training opportunities for both special education teachers and general education teachers that have students with learning disabilities mainstreamed into their general education classroom. We may also be able to negotiate additional prep time for some of our special education teachers. Class size caps and compensation are proving to be more difficult.

Hours of Employment conversations have been mostly focused on the calendar for the 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 school years.

We have started discussing wages: including adding athletic coaching positions at the high school level, a stipend for high school dance teachers, and a wage increase for all teachers. The district wants to tie any wage increase to a class size increase. The TK-3 and 4-12 class sizes have been brought up repeatedly by the district. The district has been unwilling to discuss a wage increase unless the association is willing to increase class sizes.

Future bargaining dates are scheduled for October 24, November 7, November 14, and November 21.

 
 
Your GGEA team includes: Bridget Holdermann (Chair), David Cho, Sarah Held, Arquilla Howard, Tamra Wood,
