​District Offers Pay Cut!

  • ​The District’s revenue increased 17% for the 15/16 year.
  • The State of California projects additional increase in funding for the 16/17 school year.
  • On 9/11 YCTA proposed a 15% pay increase to make progress towards competitive salaries to attract and retain highly qualified educators and teachers.
  • On 10/13 YCUSD brought nothing to the table in response to our proposal.
  • Today YCUSD presented a package with a 1% salary increase for 15/16 and a 1% salary increase for 16/17. (Neither side has opened 16/17)
  • The package proposal included an additional 40 hours of work time for collaboration in 16/17 and beyond.
  • The additional 40 hours is equal to 3.14 % on the Teacher’s Salary Schedule.
  • In addition, they significantly increased instructional minutes for 16 /17 and beyond.


The District’s proposal represents the equivalent of at least 1.14% pay cut for all YCTA unit members.
