  • General Membership Meeting

    Thank you to the members who attended the general membership meeting on April 6, 2017. Members in attendance heard about the following issues:
    Changes to health insurance in November 2017 and more details will be available in the fall when we return.
    For the second year in a row, WEA Research presented a budget overview. It is clear that significant cuts must be made to correct some management decisions. Always remember that collective bargaining agreements are the result of a mutual agreement between the district and the union. As a result of this report and the simultaneous announcements from the district regarding spending and hiring freezes, the KEA knows that this bargain will be difficult. The KEA bargaining team is committed to moving forward with positive changes for educators' working conditions and students' learning condition in this year's negotiations.
    Finally, those present unanimously approved a motion to return no later than the end of August 2017 to either ratify a tentative agreement or determine next steps collectively.
