Share Details of How Your Chapter Negotiated Part-Time Employment Stability
Thanks to the hard work by our CCA Advocate and CCA members, the legislature passed SB 1379 in 2016. By July 2017, all of your districts should have negotiated part-time employment stability clauses in their contracts. The CCA Advocate will cover some of these contract negotiations in the next issue, but we are also asking your help. Please email CCA President Lynette Nyaggah at president@cca4me.org and share the details of your negotiations. If you signed off and did not negotiate yet, we would like to know that as well. If your district has said nothing about this legislative requirement, that is very important information for us, too.
