Negotiations Continue Between CUSD & Teacher's Union. CUSD Offers 2% Signing Bonus & 3% Salary Increase

San Andreas, CA...As CUSD continues negotiations with the Calaveras Unified Educators Association (CUEA), the district is working to address areas of need without jeopardizing our fiscal ability to provide programs to meet the needs of our students.




To date, our offers have already provided the following:
· Reduced class sizes in grades TK-3 to 24:1
· Increased salaries for all teachers
· Increased hours and days for all Career Technical Education teachers
· Agreed to a district wide safety committee with equal teacher representation

CUSD’s formal offer to CUEA was a 2% one-time payment and a 2% salary increase.
CUSD’s informal offer to CUEA was a 2% one-time payment and a 3% salary increase instead.

CUSD remains open to meet with CUEA to resolve this situation so teachers can get back into their classrooms and we can move forward together to serve our students.


Mark Campbell
Superintendent
Calaveras Unified School District

A one percent change? Insulting your opponent is a poor negotiation tactic

    When you are only talking a four percent difference 1% is alot of movement. The teachers have gotten most of what they wanted. It is not about the kids anymore. They are just being money grubbing. Get back to teaching my kids!!

      They need to get paid better than they do
      You can teach your own kids if you don't like it
      They are way underpaid, and everyone except you knows it
      Police , Fire, Teachers those are the people that need to be paid, not greed, wealthy, Dotards in the White House

      You are correct, when you are talking percentages not actual numbers, a 3% increase plus a one time 2% payment on say a $60,000 a year salary gives them a one time $1,200 payment plus $1,800 annually or to break it down a bit. they would get $1,200 up front and $150 a month more. Teachers often do get salaries broken down over the full year even though they only work about 9 months, so that a paycheck is still received over the summer, not sure if CUSD does that or not

    Clearly you a product of Calaveras schools.

    2% -> 3% is a 50% change. Not insulting at all.

    Given that the average HS Grad that I see coming in and looking for work,
    cannot fill out a job application, make change, add up a time card, or use a tape measure.

    But, they are happy to sport a Che Guevara shirt, and turn down hours so they do not lose their section 8 housing and other "freebies".


    Break the union, hire quality teachers, and put the money back into the classroom.

      you are such a prick
      Why is breaking the unions so important to you
      Obviously you are not skilled enough to join a union

        Never needed to join. I am able to negotiate with employers.

        Mainly because I deprogramed myself from 20 years of "education "; and retrained myself to be useful, dependable, and not constantly coveting what others have.

        The first step to self enlightenment is to lose your never ending sense of entitlement and stop your insistent sniveling about it.

        Grow up already.

    One percent of a salary that is perhaps at least $60,000 a year would be $600 a year. The 6.5 % they are requesting would be a total of $3,900 a year. The informal offer was 3% so if that was accepted they would get $1,800 a year extra on a $60,000 salary for nine months of working a year.

      Most teachers aren't being paid that much. And don't forget taxes.

    i'll bet if they went by the merit system to give raises yearly none of these or other teachers would pass because the merit system would require their classes and students to hold a B+ average each quarter. how many teachers do you sincerely think would get raises then? ya think about it. other venues in the working world use the merit system so why not teachers.

    You want your kids educated, change the curriculum. Teachers have no say in what or how it is taught.. They are only baby sitters.

      Of course they have a say! What are you talking about! ?
      They form committees, decide what publishers' curriculum to pilot, spend over a year, maybe two, evaluating, teaching with, and presenting opinions, then meeting with textbook reps for training,...finally they decide what to purchase, and get MORE training with the new materials. This is done every 5-7 years.
