Tentative Agreement

Bargaining team goal: To strengthen the KEA contract in the areas of working conditions, compensation, and benefits to improve teaching, and learning for the students of the Kent School District.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
Your KEA Bargaining Team is pleased to announce a tentative agreement has been reached. We look forward to sharing the details with you at the general membership meeting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
Please be advised that the calendar is part of the tentative agreement and provides that KEA members will attend the district workshop days on Aug. 29 and 30. The “floating” classroom prep day (7.5 hours including your 30 minute lunch) can be worked any time between Aug. 15 and Aug. 31.

On a personal note, I hope all KEA members will take a minute to thank your representatives on the bargaining team. They have put in many long, volunteer hours, including a 14-hour day yesterday. They were committed, thoughtful and intentional as they worked for the good of the entire membership.                                                                                                                          Connie

    I look forward to seeing/hearing the particulars about our new contract! Especially jazzed about the Civility language. I’ve heard from some members in our building that the principal is already pressuring some teachers into attending off the clock events. Pressuring………….

  2. Alex Says:

    Almost 4 hours since the vote, where’s the update?

      Sorry I couldn’t get any information to you that quickly. Four hours after the vote, I was still putting things away that we used at the meeting and wouldn’t be home for another hour. I hope your Building Association Rep got the information to you in a timely manner.
