Your ongoing support has been amazing.  Our unity is visible and making a difference.  Our members keep talking.  Our Bargaining Team feels the support.

Our Bargaining Team met with the District today.  The Bargaining Update is attached.  There is some cautious optimism.

From the Bargaining Team.

We received a written proposal that was disappointingly unacceptable.  We told the District it was inadequate.  We reminded the District of the support at last night’s board meeting and the growing discontent of our members.  Then real discussion followed that led to cautious optimism.  It was VERY obvious that our actions are having an impact.  The District hears our frustration.  Much of the discussion was positive, though conceptual in nature. Nothing is in writing yet.  We are looking forward to our next bargaining session on September 17, 2013.


Your ongoing support and energy have truly impacted bargaining, and make it clear that our unity is our strength.


Thank you to our dedicated Bargaining Team and all of our members.

Have a great Labor Day weekend,
