(Offical info from Board office should be coming out.)
* The Admin will be recommending to the Board that they rescind the vote on increasing the insurance.
* We are told card swipes will be back on starting Nov 1st.
* We have been told teachers will no longer have to take attendance as of Tuesday.
* In order for Paras to get their full pay, they do work Nov 3rd. Not excited about it but at least they aren’t telling you you can’t work it and docking you a day.
* Secretaries, kind of the same thing, to get all your days in, you work the Parent-Teacher Conference day. May change in the new contract or once we return to normal lives.
The GEA Chief Negotiator has requested an emergency meeting of the bargaining teams for Monday. We have been made aware of an issue that needs to be settled.

Insurance Update:

The Board will be presented with a plan to dramatically increase our members’ insurance costs. This proposal “came from” the insurance committee. From what we understand there was not a quorum present for the vote and not all the GEA members on the committee were notified of the meeting.

You will likely hear that the Board proposed a different option and the GEA stopped it. Yes, the GEA pointed out the Board’s initial proposal violated the terms of the contract and would need to be bargained. The Board chose not to propose such changes as part of their bargaining proposal. Furthermore, the GEA objected to the Board singling out a sub-group of our membership and placing the burden of the increase on them. The GEA proposed we could agree to their plan IF individuals would be grandfathered into the changes. The Board declined.

The GEA objects to nearly doubling our members out-of-pocket and premium costs during a worldwide pandemic and believe it’s outrageous to do so while at the same meeting contemplating expanding the number of our members being exposed.

All this while we are in the midst of trying to settle a contract.
