Hello YCTA,

GOOD NEWS.  Our medical benefits from CVT have declined by 4% for next year.  Phew.  That helps.  These new rates will not go into effect until October  1, 2013. We will consider the pricing and available options to determine whether we need to make any adjustments in our plans for next year.  We will release more details as we study the rates.  

REP COUNCIL MONDAY.  We will have our last Rep Council meeting on Monday 5/20.  We will continue our task to get ALL of our members involved.  Please be sure your site is represented.  You are welcome to attend the meeting whether or not you are the elected site rep.  Join us Monday at 3:45PM.  

The Bargaining Update is on its way to your school.  The Bargaining Team met with the District yesterday and  thanks you for your support.  We are building some great momentum and the team really feels the effects.  You can access the Bargaining Update on YCTA.net or simply wait for your rep to put in your school mailbox.

Great turnout on Tuesday night.  The numbers were impressive and the mood exhilarating.  You can check out the pictures on facebook and the article in the Appeal Democrat.

Prep periods.  We need some input from teachers in grades 1-5.  Watch for the survey.  Talk to your site rep.  We need to hear from you as we address the issue of preps in bargaining.  Our next bargaining date is May 24.

See you soon, Dina
