  • YCTA has declared impasse 3/7/2016 Hello YCTA, After consideration of the District’s March 4 proposal, YCTA has once again declared impasse. The paperwork was filed with PERB this morning.  The lack of any progress at the bargaining table makes it apparent that any further negotiations without the assistance of a neutral third party mediator would be futile.  The District claimed that YCTA was “abandoning negotiations” when we declared impasse in January; this could not be further from the truth. Impasse allows the parties to continue negotiations by providing the assistance of a neutral third party mediator in the hopes that continuing negotiations in a different manner will be more constructive.  That will not happen by continuing to talk in the same manner that has ...

  • YCTA declared impasse to get the help a neutral third party to make progress in negotiations. Hello Yuba City, We are your friends and neighbors - local teachers. We are YCTA. This is our community. We have raised our children here and had committed our lives to serving all students in our schools. Our employer treats us with disdain and hopes that our community will accept their characterization of local teachers on their website. Please ask a teacher to tell you about the lack of respect. We would prefer to simply teach and not stand on corners to ask for your support in this quest. But we will continue to stand up for respect and competitive salaries that attract and retain great teachers for YC schools. (our average salary is 13.4% below the state average, while ...

Bargaining Announcements

  • This District failed again …(5/19) Mediation ended with no agreement.  We expect to be released to fact finding. Despite the overwhelming support shown by the community and our membership, this District and School Board have failed to make any progress.  Despite the growing number of vacancies and resignations, this District has failed to make progress towards competitive salaries.Without competitive salaries and a climate of respect, this District will NOT be able to fill the growing number of vacant positions.  The number of classrooms of students without credentialed teachers will grow.  The number of vacant psychologist, nurse and speech and language pathologist positions will grow.  This will have long term consequences.Why has this District so deliberately dragged out the negotiations process and so deliberately ...

  • A brief update from YCTA Bargaining Team (3/3) YCTA and YCUSD met again today(3/3).  The District’s proposal remained essentially the same.  When asked to describe the improvements in compensation over the last proposal, the District responded that they had agreed to an additional new teacher workday for 16/17, a potential retirement incentive, and a counselor work year for 16/17 following the side letter for the past several years.  Otherwise, the compensation offer continues to be no salary increase, except for those folks with 75 units beyond a BA and the SLPs.  At the same time, the District is still proposing a 3% increase to our work year (the same 120 minutes x 20 days for 16/17) for the same 1% raise in ...

  • An update from YCTA Bargaining and Executive Boards 2/6/2016 On Friday, February 5, the YCTA Exec Bd. and Bargaining Team met all day to prepare for impasse negotiations and activities to support bargaining.  YCTA remains committed to making progress toward competitive salaries that value and respect our work.On Thursday, January 28, YCTA filed for impasse with PERB to get the help of a third party mediator. YCUSD contested YCTA’s position that we are at impasse.  After our declaration of impasse, the YCUSD Board held a special closed session meeting on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.  The District told PERB that they have another proposal for us to consider.  YCTA was notified by PERB Friday afternoon that since the District had another proposal for our consideration, we would not ...

  • YCTA declares IMPASSE to move negotiations forward 1/27/15 Collective Bargaining is designed to be a collaborative, constructive process.  The laws that give public school employees the right to negotiate hours, compensation, and conditions of employment give a voice to employees, which they often did not have before this legal right was afforded.  When YCTA engages in collective bargaining with YCUSD, we seek to collaboratively solve problems and bring about constructive change.  We have presented the District with the most immediate problem: competitive salaries that attract and retain the best employees for our students and community.Despite YCTA’s continuing commitment to constructive, effective negotiations, this round of bargaining has become destructive.   Not only has the District failed to make any progress, they have insulted and disrespected us.   So ...

  • The District to YCTA: “There will be winners and losers.” 12/10/2015 The District to YCTA: “There will be winners and losers.” The District proposed implementing Marysville’s salary schedule without any provision to gradually ease into the BA+75 column, resulting in up to 330 immediate “losers.”  All anniversary increments would be slashed for everyone who does not have at least 75 units beyond their BA.  Many of our members with 16 or more years of experience would face up to a $10,000 per year immediate pay cut. These are our colleagues who devoted their lives and careers to YCUSD and the students of Yuba City. These are our colleagues who took significant pay cuts in the tough years to help out the district and newer teachers. In addition to ...
