CCA has sent a letter to President Oakley outlining the articles we will be addressing in the upcoming negotiations. Please look over the document.
The CCA and District proposals will be presented at the Board of Trustees meeting on September 13. Once the Board takes the action to accept the proposals (hopefully at the September 27 meeting), contract negotiations will begin in early October.
Please contact your CCA Rep to share your suggested changes/revisions to the contract; alternatively, you can contact Aundrea Tavvakoly (co-Chief Negotiator) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
