***Special Ratification Vote Meeting***
     The Negotiations Team has negotiated pay raises for the 2022-23 fiscal year and compensation increases.  In addition Contract language for Articles 9 and 10 have been updated.  The vote passes 62 ish votes yeah, 1 nay.  A very good turnout for a meeting of ours.  Let's keep up the good work, next Chapter Meeting is Wednesday September 28th.

Elections in the Chapter
In September of this year there are 4 Negotiations Team positions up for election (see list below in this column). Also in October and November of this year All Executive Board Positions are open for elections. With recent and pending retirements this will also open up additional positions on the Negotiations Team to serve the remainder of those terms.  Your Union, our Chapter, needs you to step up to take on the challenges of these rolls.  For far too long far too few have been doing way too much.  We represent 1100 employees and struggle with getting an active participation rate of around 4%.  We can and must do better.  With the latest rounds of negotiations Classified Employees have had some significant wins and continue to negotiate very successfully, but there continues to be a lot of work yet to be done.  We need people of every job classification to fill vital roles on negotiations, the eBoard, Job Stewards and as Site Reps.  See you at the next Chapter Meeting on September 28th!

Two independent charter schools were approved by the District's school board in September.  These charter school are seeking to set up shop in Rancho Cordova and take District students and funding away from FCUSD to provide educational programs that are already provided by the District.  CSEA and FCEA fought hard together to oppose them, yet the three school board members from Folsom approved the applications.  If the schools open and draw students away from the District a) It is the consensus they will not as good an education they would if they stay enrolled where they currently are, b) Will cost CSEA and FCEA jobs, and c) may take funding away from from programs funded in the district if enrollment in those programs is significantly reduced.  Stand Strong and continue to show your disapproval of these school board actions and of the two independent charter schools.
