The OEA Bargaining Team submitted proposals for Article VI Leaves. OEA proposed an additional sick day, for a total of eleven (11) sick days. In addition, we proposed Wellness Leave for OEA Members. OEA also submitted language clarifying placement upon return from extended leave.
OEA proposed a new article, Professional Courtesy. which would allow Bargaining Unit Members to enroll their children in the Oxnard School District at any school with space available. This would extend for the duration of enrollment and not be year to year.
OEA and OSD began discussions on class size as our MOU is expiring. In addition, the District would like to begin talks regarding AB 2735. We anticipate lengthy discussions about this legislation and its possible implications for our middle school members.
Three additional bargaining dates have also been scheduled.
