Bargaining Update for 2021/2022
January 6, 2021
 
 

The GGEA Bargaining Team met with the District on December 19 and January 6. We have a futurebargaining dates on January 20 after school. The following items were dicsussed:

  • Article 4 - Hours of employment
    • 2023/2024 Calendar
  • Article 9 - Class Size
    • GGEA proposed:
      • TK class ratio of 12:1
      • K-3 site ratio of 24.5:1
      • 4-6 site ratio of 29.5:1
      • 7-12 district ratio of 29.5:1
    • GGUSD proposed:
      • TK-3 site ratio of 23-26:1
      • 4-6 district ratio of 28:1 not to exceed a site ratio of 30.5:1
      • 7-12 district ratio of 29.5:1

Per this year's MOU on Class Size, we are staffing at the following ratios:

    • TK-3 site ratio of 25.5:1
    • 4-6 district ratio of 29:1
    • 7-12 district ratio of 30.5:1

The district is proposing a range which starts at a number lower than we are currently staffing this year, however
the upper of the range is higher than where we are currently. GGEA sees this as problematic since smaller classes
would benefit students. Which is why we have proposed a number that is lower than this year's staffing ratios and
would stay lower than this year's staffing ratios day remaining.

  • Article 12 - Wages
    • GGEA proposed a 5% increase to the salary schedule near the beginning of the school year
    • At this time, GGUSD has not provided a response to our wage proposal
  • Article 13 - Health and Welfare Benefits
    • 13.6e was discussed

The Assistant Superintendent and Director of Special Education also came in to present the current status of class
sizes and caseloads in GGUSD. They also answered questions.

 
 
Your GGEA team includes: Sara Held, Bridget Holdermann (Chair), Arqilla Howard, Joe Miller, Tamra Woods,
