Your team met with our CTA representative today. We discussed the results of our survey and our preliminary plans for language and salary/benefits proposals. These are all preliminary because more information is needed before we can make final bargaining decisions.
Two of our team members have left us. Kathy Wheeler has relocated to Northern California. We wish her well. Patti Fregin is serving in a long-term capacity as an Assistant Principal at Bell Mountain. We agreed that her participation in bargaining or, indeed, as an active Association member, might appear to be a conflict of interest so she has recused herself for the time being. We will miss her expertise and passion.
As it now stands, your team members are: Scott Grantham (MVMS), Brenda Myers (RES), Heather Tortoreti (BMMS), and Mike Williams (CKE).
We are dedicated to securing the best possible agreement for our members and pledge to work diligently to do so.
I will do my best to provide timely status updates on this site as we begin the process. Thank you for your support.
