AUSD and CSEA Sign Tentative Agreement (11/18/2016)





Issued By:        


Superintendent Sean McPhetridge (510) 337-7060

Board President Solana Henneberry (510) 337-7187

CSEA 860 President Frank Muñoz


Alameda, Calif. — November 18, 2016 — Negotiating teams for the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) and the California School Employees Association Chapter 860 (CSEA 860) have reached a tentative agreement (TA) in their re-opener negotiations over salary and other contract considerations.


AUSD and CSEA 860 (which includes custodians, maintenance, and food service employees) signed a three-year agreement in August, 2015. That contract gave CSEA 860 the right to “re-open” salary and other contract articles in 2016-17 and 2017-18.


Under the terms of this week’s TA, members of CSEA 860 will receive an on-going 3.11% raise in salary, retrospective to July 1, 2016.  The contract also included provisions that:


  • Ease the creation of work calendars
  • Facilitate job postings and employee training

The signing of the TA completes bargaining on the re-opened articles in the CSEA 860 contract. The two teams will meet again on December 1 to continue their negotiations on job descriptions for all of the unit’s classifications.


 “The members of CSEA 860 are indispensable to the operation of our schools and the support of our students and staff,” says Board of Education President Solana Henneberry. “I am so pleased to hear that their salary schedule will now be increased along with our other employees.”


The Board of Education ratified new agreements with the Alameda Education Association (which represents the district’s teachers, nurses, counselors, and speech and language pathologists) in early November and with CSEA 27 (representing office/technical workers and paraprofessionals) in June.


“I would like to thank CSEA 860’s negotiating team for all their hard work in coming to this agreement with AUSD,” says Frank Muñoz, president of CSEA 860.


The next step is for CSEA 860 members and AUSD's Board of Education to vote on whether to ratify the agreement.


“I am grateful that we now have a tentative agreement with our third bargaining unit,” says Superintendent Sean McPhetridge. “I thank CSEA 860’s negotiating team for working with our team to craft an acceptable contract, and I look forward to our continued partnership as we make ongoing progress on our work to support all students and staff over the coming years.”
