We have caseloads!!
CVEU is excited to share with you that after nearly two years of negotiations, we have successfully addressed our member’s core values and have signed tentative agreements for Work Status, Workday, Salary and Caseloads as well as the rest of our contract!
The union would like to thank the 338 teachers who made their voices heard by signing the caseoload petition and the amazing strike captains and reps who reached out to members to keep them informed. Caseloads for Elementary teachers is placed at 31 for homeroom, and 32 for middle school and high school. Caseloads were also reached for Guidance Counselors and Freshman Support Specialists. We will be creating a special committee starting July 1, 2018, consisting of two CVEU representatives and two CAVA representatives to recommend caseload numbers for Intervention, ELD, Science Lab teachers, SPED teachers, Mentor teachers, high school content and Community Day. An update will be sent out with more specific information regarding overages as well as other details about the caseload article. CVEU is confident that the caseload article begins to address the issues and concerns our members have in regards to unmanageable caseloads and begins to ensure the success of CAVA teachers and students. This goes along with our already agreed upon strong contract language concerning salaries, workday, job security and workload.
Please look forward to more information in our newsletter including an upcoming member meeting to address any questions members have and to review next steps.
CVEU was only successful in bargaining because we had a strong unit of teachers come together to make this happen. We are now asking that you make your membership official and complete the membership form on SharePoint. Cost of membership will be approximately $48 per paycheck and dues will not start until after the contract has been ratified. Our goal is 100% membership before we ratify the contract. CVEU reps will be reaching out to you to help with any questions you may have in regards to membership. We will also share more information shortly about our plan for contract ratification.
