The San Ramon Valley Unified School District Board of Education announced it will be meeting to review the status of labor negotiations during a closed session on Wednesday, just days after reaching a tentative agreement with California School Employees Association, Chapter 65.
Specifically, during Wednesday’s meeting district officials will confer with assistant superintendent of human resources Keith Rogenski on the status of negotiations with members of the San Ramon Valley Education Association, CSEA and Service Employees International Union.
On Friday, district officials announced that they tentatively reached a new three year successor collective bargaining agreement for the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2022.
The agreement included an ongoing base salary schedule increase of 2.56% along with a "me too" clause should any other bargaining unit negotiate a higher salary -- retroactively effective to July 1.
Other highlights of the agreement include expanded provisions for using accumulated and unused vacation leave, increased leave benefits available through the Catastrophic Leave Bank and the addition of a new article intended to improve communications and training for CSEA members.
During Wednesday’s closed session board members will also conference with their legal counsel on unspecified existing litigation.
While discussions on labor negotiations and litigation will be conducted in a closed session not open to the public, community members are welcome to attend the opening moments of the meeting and share their thoughts on proceedings during the meeting’s public comment section.
The SRVUSD Board of Education special closed meeting will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the district offices on 699 Old Orchard Drive, Danville
