May 8, 2013 OEA Membership Meeting, Bargaining Update, Resolution Vote and California Day of the Teacher Celebration

Thank you for your patience in dealing with an ever-changing bargaining landscape. While we held out the hope that May 8 would be a ratification meeting, it is now an informational meeting for members to get questions answered and to decide on next steps. AND a Day of the Teacher Celebration!

Wednesday, May 8, Oakland High
4:00-5:30 Membership Meeting
5:30-7:00, Day of the Teacher Celebration

This is your opportunity to get the information that you need to make decisions about how we address bargaining and membership issues. It is especially important to those sites without elected OEA Reps.

The current Bargaining Update will be available with information about OUSD's proposal to have Health Net members pay significantly more per month for their coverage. It will explain why health benefits are bargained as part of a district-wide Health Benefits Insurance Committee.

Your OEA Site Representatives unanimously adopted the Resolution Declaring the Current offer by the District unacceptable at Monday's Representative Council. TOMORROW, you get to vote! Join your colleagues at this important (but short!) meeting.

The District has also made no movement from their original compensation offer.
Come to the meeting to get the latest information and stay for Food and Live Music.

So many have shown your Bargaining Team support this year. Let's keep it up!
