Members Voted to Ratify Tentative Agreement
The Alameda teachers' union voted to ratify the tentative agreement our bargaining team has been working on for two years! It passed with an 80% thumbs up in a terrific show of solidarity. Members get a 4.5% raise for this year, the ability to drop dental insurance if they don't want it (worth $1,200/year right there), class size limits for the 1st time for our more disabled students, and many other things. And the LA teachers reached a tentative agreement! Congrats and thanks to the AEA bargaining team who worked so very hard to bring this to fruition, and to all the members who cared and voted.
