How we work for you:
SALARIES: Our contract does not guarantee automatic salary increases. CCEA has to fight for them EVERY YEAR at the bargaining table. When you were hired you assumed you would be given a pay increase each year. The district has failed to budget for this for 7+ years.
PROTECTIONS FOR ANNUAL CONTRACT TEACHERS: Two years ago we successfully bargained for a new phase in the hiring process that guarantees annual contract teachers who have been let go an interview before brand new hires.
INSERVICE: Many inservice trainings require follow-up paperwork before points will be awarded. How often have you gone to a training but didn’t find the information relevant to your specific classroom needs? CCEA is fighting for teachers to receive partial points for seat time for all trainings.
INSURANCE: Insurance premiums have risen year after year but the district has failed to increase their contribution. The result is that teachers have seen their take-home pay decline. We recently won an increase in the district’s contribution and will continue to fight for increases in the future.
CONTRACT MONITORING: CCEA ensures that district and school-based administrators follow the contract and can file grievances on behalf of members when the contract is violated.
REPRESENTATION ON DISTRICT-LEVEL COMMITTEES: CCEA places teachers on committees such as CAS (our evaluation tool), PDAC (professional development), Insurance, Calendar, and Student Code of Conduct Review. Without us, many decisions would be made with no teacher input!
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: We offer a 20-hour ESE course that satisfies the state’s recertification requirements.
