It’s Saturday & We’re Still On Strike – District Actions Bring Us To Twilight Zone Territory



(Take note: You can see my preceding posts on our strike listed here)

Our strike has arrive at Twilight Episode territory.

Here’s a report from our union which, as a member of the bargaining staff I can attest is correct (I really do not see in any case to basically backlink this report to the union supply):

The District’s actions more than the very last week has been erratic. Very first, the District refused to bargain above the total weekend, then arrived to mediation on Monday unprepared. Future, soon after indicating it wanted 15 minutes to caucus, it saved our bargaining staff waiting around for six hours and then unveiled its proposals to the community in violation of mediation guidelines. We have filed an unfair labor exercise charge with PERB around the District’s ethical and authorized breach.

The subsequent day, the District refused to fulfill facial area-to-confront in the digital assembly place and then made two equivalent proposals on the similar day and tried using to assert they had been distinct. Just after we rejected the district proposal and supplied a counterproposal by way of the mediators, the District then claimed it was waiting around for a counterproposal. When the point out of California’s elected chief in schooling phone calls the functions with each other to test to go the discussion towards a settlement, the District refuses to attend. It is no ponder that the administrators represented by UPE added their voices to individuals who have no self-confidence in Superintendent Aguilar’s leadership.

So, our union has despatched the district, again, our counter proposal, even though we gave it to them previously in the week.
