Would you like to meet school board trustees David McCallum, Sherie Mahlberg, Michael Kitzes and/or Teri Nutt tomorrow? Stop by Blondies Bar and Grill at 555 Main Street (the old Creekside Cafe) to share what’s on your mind. The meeting will follow our rep council, so, building reps, just hang around!
Each member’s January pay warrant should have retroactive pay on it.
Base salaries were cut by 3.26% starting in July for 12-month pay and starting in September for 10-month pay.
With the passage of Proposition 30, our contract reverted back to a single furlough day instead of six.
Therefore, base salaries should only be cut by .55%. You should see a retroactive amount equal to 2.71% of your monthly base salary (multiplied by 6 months for 12-month pay, multiplied by 4 months for 10-month pay) on your pay warrant.
Example: Step 19, BA+75, $68013 yearly salary
12-month pay: $68013 divided by 12 multiplied by .0271 multiplied by 6 = $922
10-month pay: $68013 divided by 10 multiplied by .0271 multiplied by 4 = $737
The calculations for those paid on different Schedules are slightly different because of the different number of workdays for each job.

Strategic Long-Term Planning
The California Teachers Association has embarked upon a strategic planning process, at the direction of its State Council of Education, and under the guidance of the Labor Education and Research Center (LERC) at the University of Oregon. This strategic planning process—entitled “Your Voice. Our Union. Our Future.”—is about the future of CTA. The goal: Make sure CTA is positioned in the best possible way to help all students and educators succeed.
In order to accomplish this goal, CTA will rely on the people that know the organization best—the members and the staff. Initial committees have been formed and work has already begun on the initial research phase of this project.
