CTA met with the SDPBC today to continue salary negotiations for the 2019-2020 school year.
This was the second negotiations session where salary proposals were exchanged.
At the first salary proposal exchange held on October 2, the SDPBC offered raises of 2.65% for Highly Effective and 2.11% for Effective (based on last year’s PBC evaluation results). CTA countered their proposal by requesting 4.50% for Highly Effective and 3.63% for Effective.
See below for the most recent proposals exchanged at today’s negotiations:
As a counter to CTAs proposal for raises of 4.50% for Highly Effective and 3.63% for Effective from the previous negotiations session, the SDPBC proposed raises of 3.25% for Highly Effective and 2.50% for Effective.
CTA responded by indicating that we are unable to accept their latest proposal. CTA President Katz spoke at the most recent school board meeting in late September and made clear that there is no possibility CTA can accept raises lower than the levels negotiated during the previous two school years.
Furthermore, because of increased funding from the state legislature this year, CTA expects that any raises negotiated for the 2019-2020 school year should be at a minimum, incrementally higher than the raises we have negotiated in each of the two previous years.
The next scheduled negotiations session between the SDPBC/CTA is on November 5, 2019 at 9:00 AM in the school board room at the district headquarters.
