Bargaining Update
 
 
 
April 22, 2021
 
Tentative Agreement Announcement
 
Dear East Side Employees,
 
The ESTA and District negotiating teams reached a tentative agreement on multiple proposals, as well as a 4% on schedule salary increase beginning with the 2021-2022 school year.  The lead negotiators want to thank all the members of both teams for their positivity and professionalism in representing their stakeholders while working toward a contract that continues our shared work of building equitable communities.  

The tentative agreement next goes to the Santa Clara County Office of Education for review and the East Side Teachers Association members for ratification.  If ratified by ESTA members, the contract will be brought to the East Side Union High School District Board of Trustees for approval.

Thank you,

Brandon Rosato (ESTA Chief Negotiator) and Glenn Vander Zee (Associate Superintendent – Human Resources)

Today's Bargaining Highlights (Day 5)
 
 
Dear East Side Employees,
 
As the fifth day of bargaining closed, we had only two more articles remaining to negotiate.  ESUHSD and ESTA have got down to some of the more difficult topics and both sides or working together to find a much desired middle ground.  The group will meet one more time before the Spring Break in April. Thank you all for your support in reaching an equitable contract this year.
 
Thank you,
 
Brandon Rosato (ESTA Chief Negotiator) and Glenn Vander Zee (Associate Superintendent – Human Resources)

Today’s Bargaining Highlights (Day 1)
 
 
Dear East Side Employees,
 
The district and ESTA negotiating teams met today for a positive start in our first day of negotiations for 2021-2024. The teams established the logistics of negotiating via virtual meeting and sharing documents electronically as we continue to deal with the challenges of social distancing.
 
The teams brought various proposals centering around Article 15--Class Size and are scheduled to meet for the next two Wednesdays before determining future dates.
 
Both teams are looking forward to this process as part of building equitable communities. 
 
Thank you,
 
Glenn Vander Zee, Associate Superintendent of Human Resources, and Brandon Rosato, ESTA Chief Negotiator
