After two bargaining sessions VTA has declared IMPASSE! The District will receive $13.5 million in new monies next year but offered 0% raise and 0% for benefits and in fact toward us that we really owe them money back from our raise in January but they feel zero is correct.
I have attached my school board speech from last night and a 22 point financial fact sheet that our bargaining chair, Ron Ferreirae, shared with the District's bargaining team. These facts are why we believe declaring impasse is our only option. Please follow our facebook page, Support VUSD Teachers, and check our webpage at http://www.vistata.org/ for updates.
