MOU – 2013-2014 Reclassification Settlement Agreement
Due to a closed contract and agreement for no Reclassifications/Reorganizations for two years, the first opening of Reclassification Applications was in 2013-14. Because there was no contract language in Article 8.15 & Exhibit C- Reclassification for step placement and a delay of two years to be able to apply, CSEA filed a grievance to determine a proper step placement.  It was determined that industry standard was language in Article 5 -Promotions section of the contract. CSEA/District negotiated a one-time non-precedence setting agreement to add one step in addition to industry standard in consideration of the delay opportunity for reclass applications.

Negotiation Team – Completion of Terms for Two Positions
We have two Negotiation Team members to replace in the “Aides” family. Nominations could only be submitted by members of the “Aides – Instructional Aides, Special Ed. Aides, Child Care Aides, and Campus Monitors”  family.  Nominations opened in September and closed in October at our Regular Chapter meetings.  Entire membership votes on nominees since they will represent the entire membership while serving their terms. This election is to complete the remaining terms for Cal Fenolio and Katy Huntze.
>> Running for seats are Sandy Hanford, Mary Laporte, and Tammy Schlesser.







Dear Chapter Site Reps

I would like to take this time to thank each of you for all of your time and effort in making sure that CSEA is visible at all PUSD sites and for seeing that all classified employees on your sites are kept well informed by distributing surveys, chapter information and maintaining our CSEA bulletin boards. Without you we would not be able to promote the good and welfare of the organization to the members of this chapter. For this is a very valuable and important task to me personally as well as for the members and for that I am very grateful to you. Again thank you.
Alex Sutton, Chapter President

Flu Safety
