DISTRICTS DELAYS SESPA BARGAIN
The parties bargained on August 21-22 until 4:00 am and were not able to reach agreement on a new SESPA Contract. The SESPA Team remained strong in our advocacy for members' financial survival and our commitment to providing quality services to students and quality support for our certificated colleagues. We continue to insist on meaningful, paid professional development opportunities for our members.
SESPA Bargainers asked for another bargaining session as soon as possible. The District Team claims that they cannot bargain until September 10. If they really Respected and Valued SESPA employees, they would bargain with us right away and settle the Contract before school starts. Their delay is unacceptable!
Tell the District to stop stonewalling. Tell them we need a Fair Contract and we need one before school starts. Come to the Rally on Monday, August 23 at 4:30 PM at the Shoreline Center. Support the SESPA Team.
All SESPA members must attend the membership meeting on August 26 at 5 PM. We are moving the meeting away from the Shoreline Center and will announce the location shortly.
SESPA - It is time to stand up and demand that your roles be respected and valued by Shoreline.
Your SESPA Bargaining Team
