Travis district teachers, classified staff plan protest

FAIRFIELD — Members of the teachers union and classified employees association, challenging the 5.1 percent raise they say trustees granted Travis School District management, will rally Tuesday in the parking lot before the school board meeting.

Trustees will meet at 5 p.m. for a closed-door session to confer with labor negotiators.

The Travis Unified Teachers Association in a release said the school district has increased medical benefits for managers, while teachers, bus drivers, custodians and secretaries received no increase.

“This inequity disproportionately punishes those least able to afford it,” the teachers union said.

“Teachers do not argue against improvements in compensation for management,” the release said. “However, improvements must not come at the expense of teachers and classified workers who have suffered decreased pay and increased workload for the past five years.”

Teachers ask trustees to reaffirm the commitment to fairness by extending the same benefit to all employees.

Superintendent Kate Wren Gavlak has declined to comment on statements by the teachers union and classified employees.

Other matters before trustees at the Tuesday meeting include a proposed $44 million budget for 2014-15.

Trustees meet in open session at 6 p.m. at the Travis Education Center, 2775 De Ronde Drive in Fairfield.

    This surely does not demonstarte good leadership. All employees suffered to maintain jobs and staffing during these past years, all employees should be compensated equally. Managers medical needs are no different than a teacher's or a custodian, increase equally. Spend some money on Leadership Skills Training and not on Recess consultants, seems as if they need it.

    Hey Mike, are you sitting at those board meetings every month to see what is truly happening in the Tavis district? Or are you just going off of what is a one sided reporting of the issue? Better yet, are you sitting in the negotiation process to know what truly went down with it all? Run for school board and get the facts!
