Hide and Seek
As we get closer to this year’s surplus process that is scheduled for May the 20th-24th SCTA needs your assistance. Every year Principals attempt to hide positions from the surplus placement process. The contract calls for all known positions to be made available at the surplus process. When a Principal attempts to hide a position from the process it is not only a contract violation, it is a highly unethical practice that erodes the benefits of the District’s agreed upon CBA with SCTA. Please help us identify any positions you think are being hidden by bringing them to our attention as soon as possible.
ED JOBS Settlement Payment
The District and SCTA have worked though the clarification issues around the identification of members employed and eligible for payment of the $600. All unit members (regardless of job classification) employed during the 2010-11 school year will receive the payment. The only unit members that will not be receiving a payment under the settlement are those employees who had a contract for .50FTE or less and those who, for whatever reason, did not complete at least .75% of the year. The payment is expected on the regular May payroll for those members currently employed. Employees who are no longer employed with the District will be mailed a check for $600.
