The San Ramon Valley school board is set to consider pay increases for school district service workers and management employees at its meeting Tuesday night (March 25).
The tentative agreement with the Service Employees International Union Local 1021, Unit I calls for a 4% raise -- retroactive to Jan. 1 -- for all members of the union, which represents custodial, grounds, maintenance and transportation workers.
The compensation increases for union members would cost roughly $258,000 this school year, according to district staff.
The school board will also discuss 4% raises for management and confidential employees, retroactive to Jan. 1. The compensation increases for the superintendent, chief business officer and three assistant superintendents would cost about $20,000 this fiscal year, according to district staff.
The proposed pay raises are listed among the open-session items for Tuesday's regular board meeting, set to begin at 7 p.m. in the boardrooms at 699 Old Orchard Drive in Danville.
The school board approved 4% raises for members of the San Ramon Valley Education Association, which represents teachers and other employees, at its March 11 meeting. District officials reportedly remain in negotiations with representatives of two other classified employee bargaining units, California School Employees Association units II and III.
In other business Tuesday, the school board will recognize the district's 2014 Classified Employees of the Year. These employees are set to be honored with a reception before the meeting, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the boardrooms.
Board members will consider final approval for proposed revisions to the policy addressing drug- and alcohol-free workplaces. They will also review recommended changes to the administrative regulation pertaining to reasonable accommodations for current or prospective employees.
The board will discuss approving a letter of intent with Verizon Wireless to place cellular telecommunications equipment on a stadium lighting pole at California High School in San Ramon.
Later, board members will recess the school board meeting and convene a meeting of the SRVUSD Joint Powers Financing Authority to confirm the authority's officers and to accept the authority's 2012-13 financial report.
