SEA Impact Bargaining 2020 - Update for July 13, 2020:
It became clear over the weekend that SPS has been making decisions without first collaborating with us as required by the process agreed to called "interest-based bargaining." SPS has not provided any information related to their decisions to our bargaining team, yet we have been learning about it through other channels (see one example). Given the lack of collaboration and information sharing, a letter was sent to Superintendent Juneau on Saturday.
Bargaining continues much as before, but we will not be jointly developing proposals with the district since they have not honored that interest-based process. From this point forward, we will now engage in traditional "positional" bargaining which means we will create specific proposals based on member input.
We need your voice to further guide our decisions. Take this brief, 5-question survey about re-opening schools this fall.
