The MEA Bargaining Team would like your input on what we should bargain this year. Salary and benefits is closed for the next two years, meaning we can’t bring that up unless new money shows up in the district’s coffers. Remember, we bargained 85% of cola goes into our pockets. 2% will go on salary, and the remaining dollars will go on health care. So, my question for you is…anything else in the contract you would like us to bring up?
Some new events have been added to our Member Free Fun in this order…Manteca Pumpkin Fair, Manteca Dining Hall, and Bowling Night, Christmas Parade. Editorial blurb… working the Fair, St. Mary’s Dining Hall, and the Parade Fair helps us to build allies in the community. When we need their help during negotiations, they know what we’ve done for the community, and not just teaching their kids. Plus, it makes you feel pretty damn good afterwards.
