Dear HUSD Community,
California has the fifth largest economy in the world, yet our state ranks near the bottom in most measures of school funding and staffing. Additionally, the needs of our district continue to increase while a decline in enrollment places significant constraints on our budget.
It is within this challenging budgetary context that
HUSD continues to negotiate in good faith with its four employee bargaining units: Hayward Education Association (HEA), Association of Educational Office and Technical Employees (AEOTE), Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Safeco/M&O, and SEIU Para-YEP.
This update provides a snapshot of our district's challenges and goals. It also provides the scheduled dates of our next negotiation sessions with our labor partners.
