TENTATIVE AGREEMENT REACHED 2015-2018

TENTATIVE AGREEMENT REACHED
The DCSMEC bargaining team has worked tirelessly to find every dollar available, taking the current budget climate in mind. We think that this resolution is fair and helps move us forward for the next three years.
Highlights of tentative agreement follow;

1. A 2.4% (across the board) wage increase, effective 7/1/2015. (Yes, this means RETRO)

2. Effective the first month following the School Board ratification of the 2015-2018 successor contract, eligible full-time employees in their fourth year of employment and thereafter shall accrue annual (vacation) time at 1.834 days per month increasing vacation time to 22 days for fiscal year.
3. Uniform allowance will be increased from $130 to $175 per year. The parties agreed to develop and recommend administrative policy for prescribed uniforms.
4. All H1 (temporary) salaried employees will be adjusted to the HO (Permanent 100%) salary schedule effective the first pay period following the School Board ratification of the 2015–2018 successor contract. Permanent employees will no longer be hired under the Temporary salary schedule.
5. Extend probationary period language for three years 2015-2018.
6. Extend written skills test for three years 2015-2018.
7. Seniority report will be provided on a semiannual basis.
8. (Interim position) removed unnecessary language to make position accessible to all.
9. Clarification of Holiday Pay eligibility.
• Health Insurance
➢ Options and Health Plan design, the same as last year.
➢ Cigna OAP 10, OAP 20 and Local Plus
➢ Lower premium rates for the majority of employee.
➢ Redesign of Salary Bands to be more advantageous and the District agreed to remove restrictions on free option (Local Plus), which will result in savings for the DCSMEC unit.

For future employees:
A three-year pilot program (designated H2) will be implemented to attempt to hire “new”employees in the Carpenter, Glazer, Mason, Painter and Roofer job categories.

The H2 pilot program will not affect current employees.

Update about salary increases.

Dear Members,

“Yes” I have seen the paper and the Union Officers and I have had a flurry
of very excited calls from our members. Many of the members who have
called have not actually read the paper and are hearing rumors. If you read
the paper you will see that the very first sentence reads “Miami-Dade school
administrators have more earning potential under revamped salary schedule.”
That does not mean that 1300 administrators received a 10 to 30% raise.
The fact is that those 1300 administrators have not received anything. The
only people who have received a salary increase is 3 Managerial Exempt
administrators who got promotions. Even unions believe that people should get
raises when they get promotions.

With all the calls the Officers and I have received I put a formal request into the
Labor/Relations department to go over and explain what this article means in
the event I was reading it wrong.

The response is attached.
