Tuesday's agenda includes public hearings on joint initial proposals for labor negotiations and consideration of acceptance with the California School Employees Association (CSEA) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU).

The agreements to begin negotiations for successor contracts with the unions for their respective upcoming periods -- July 2022 through July 2025 for CSEA, and for the 2022-2023 school year for SEIU -- are set to remain the same as the terms of the current contract, with some exceptions.

SEIU and the district have agreed to negotiate articles for salary and allowances and "miscellaneous" for the new contract, with CSEA and the district agreeing to negotiate 15 different articles of the current contract, including benefits, salary, vacation, disciplinary action and organizational security.

The votes on reopening negotiations with both unions include public hearings on the proposed reopener agreements. District staff are recommending that the board accept both joint initial proposals.

* The board is set to hear a presentation and consider accepting an annual unaudited actuals financial report due each September.

* The board is set to vote on updating district policies to reflect the elimination of its chief business officer and assistant superintendent of business, operations, and facilities positions, and replacement with one position for assistant superintendent of business operations.

The resolution would designate that position as classified senior management, and reflect that the assistant superintendent of human resources position currently falls under senior management.
