2018-19 EP Negotiations

September 14
Since the focus of this session was to negotiate the memorandum of understanding on differentiated accountability (DA) schools, members of the negotiations teams called and attempted to visit six DA schools to gather feedback on proposals from the affected members regarding contractual language for pay, lessons plans, planning time, transfers and more.

The teams were denied access to most of the schools they attempted to visit in direct violation of Article 29 (Section J). As this demonstrated that the District was not negotiating in good faith with the union by preventing a meeting with our members, BTU ended the session quickly until a solution is reached.

The next sesssion will be October 8. Members are always welcome to attend sessions to view negotiations.

September 7
The District presented a revised version of the memorandum of understanding on differentiated accountability (DA) schools. There was much discussion about contractual language for pay, lessons plans, planning time, transfers and more. BTU requested changes that will be made and brought back to a future session

The next sesssion will be September 14. Members are always welcome to attend sessions to view negotiations.

July 23
The BTU Team reviewed proposed program and rules for differentiated accountability (DA) schools in an effort to negotiate a memorandum of understanding between BTU and SBBC. The MOU will contain contractual language for pay, lessons plans, planning time, transfers and more.

The next sesssion will be September 7. Members are always welcome to attend sessions to view negotiations.


July 19
Negotiations for the 2018-19 contract began with opening statements by BTU President Anna Fusco, ESP Vice President Bernie Kemp and TSP Vice President Matt Decker.
