Your WDEA negotiating team has worked long and hard with the WUSD negotiating team to put together a Tentative Agreement. We feel that the district bargained in good faith and that the numbers and information we received were accurate. The tone at the table was better than it has been for several years.
Below are the highlights of the Tentative Agreement between WUSD and WDEA:
1) A three tier health care plan put into the contract. The Bronze plan would be 100% paid by the district. Wellness plans would be 85/15 split. The high plans would be an 80/20 split. The Bronze plan would first be tried as a two year MOU to see what happens with the Affordable Healthcare Act.
2) A 3% raise on the salary schedule effective July1, 2015.
3) K-3 class size 24-1 with a raise in overage to $5.50 per student at those grade levels. (This change is based on what the state is now paying for Class Size Reduction)
4) Cali student contact numbers and overages to match the high school contract language.
There will be a WDEA General Membership Meeting on Monday, May 11th at Windsor High School in the Library. Please make sure you attend so that you questions and concerns addressed.
