Ogden School Board Arbitrarily Changes Negotiated Agreement without negotiations with OEA

I hope you have had a chance to look at the documents on our webpage (www.ogdenweber.org):
  • The new "Procedural Manual" and "Common Contract" that take parts of our former Negotiated Agreement and has made huge changes- 26 sections entirely gone, 24 sections left alone, 42 sections w/changes (some huge ones) and 3 entirely new sections
  • My summary of the changes (I eyes are crossed from trying to cross-reference between the three documents)
  • The changes in the salary schedule (some teachers will receive a lot of money, some not so much) that even out the steps at about 3% increments as you go down the column. (I calculate it will cost at least $1 million to pay for it, much more than steps cost)
  • Supt. Z's video explanation to the Standard-Examiner Editorial Board (no friends of ours)
I will need to post a copy of the old Negotiated agreement since the district took it off their page.

If you have questions please email me at rick@ogdenweber.org or call me at 801-390-6365

Thanks for your support and solidarity
