29. August 2016 · Comments Off on Get Ready for Your New Contract – Ratification Vote on September 12 · Categories: Your Contract

After five months, your bargaining team signed a one-year deal to ensure you got your 2016 raise as soon as possible:

5% raise effective July 1, 2016

all classifications, all steps

Your team views this as a downpayment on true city pay parity, which means we have a lot more work to do: we’ll be back at the table this winter to continue fighting for fair wages and policies to retain the very best staff for our school children!

The ratification vote will be on Monday, September 12 at sites around the district — we’ll send out exact details later this week. Your bargaining team strongly urges you to vote YES!

We also made progress on a variety of workplace issues. Here are the highlights:

5 floating holidays every year going forward

Doubled tuition reimbursement pool and individual limits; Also participation in City University, providing a wide variety of free classes at City College of San Francisco

Catastrophic sick leave donation program

Aunt and Uncle included in family covered by bereavement leave

Verbal reprimands will not be placed in your personnel file unless there are further issues

No discipline for substance violations that would not be a crime in California

A commitment to permanent testing for clerks by July 2017

Promotional interview priority for clerks at step 5

Travel time and expenses between worksites paid for SNS workers on split shifts

Employee orientation meetings within 60 days of hire

Complete drafts of the new contract are available for review – just let us know and we’ll send you one.
