A public hearing about a school-support employee union’s initial contract proposal for 2018-19, a review of an agreement with the state Migrant Education program, and an update to the working draft of the district’s Local Control Accountability Plan for the current year and through 2020 are on the agenda when Fairfield-Suisun Unified leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
Chapter 302 of the California School Employees Association, which represents the district’s classified employees, submitted an initial proposal as part of the “sunshining” process related to the current contracts for the 2018-19 year. (Classified employees include bus drivers, food-service workers, maintenance crews, custodians, and the like.)
Under state law, to sunshine a contract proposal is a way to let the public know what the bargaining units will discuss during contract negotiations.
