Negotiations Update,

As many of you are aware, negotiation teams from the Riverbank Teachers Association and the Riverbank Unified School District met with a state appointed mediator on Wednesday, May 11th in order to reach agreement with respect to the 2015-16 contract. At the end of the negotiation session, no agreement was reached; however, the next date of negotiations with a mediator has been scheduled for June 1, 2016.

Thanks for your patience as RTA and RUSD work towards an agreement through the negotiations process. The District's negotiation team has offered and will continue to offer to meet during evenings, on weekends or during the summer in an effort to reach an agreement as expeditiously as possible.  A visual representation of the negotiation process may be found on the District's website - click here to view Negotiation Process . Also, the latest proposals may be found by clicking here Proposals .

What do you want for our students?

At the board meeting on April 12, 2016 Dr. Camp urged parents, students, staff and the entire Riverbank community to become involved in conversations about how to support students. For the past few months the District and professional associations have not been able to come to an agreement on such items as salaries, benefits and full-day kindergarten. Over the last few years the District has invested a significant amount of resources to increase and improve services for students. If you have an interest in creating the best educational setting for students with the resources we have, then please attend and participate in at least one of the following gatherings:

Negotiations Update:

Negotiations with the Riverbank Teachers Association continues to be a priority for the district. Over the last year, in addition to the negotiation sessions that have taken place during the school day, the District has offered to meet during the summer, after school hours and on weekends in an effort to come to an agreement in a timely manner. At the last negotiation session on March 3rd the district proposed a 5% salary increase for the 2015-16 school year and the Riverbank Teachers Association's last proposal included a 9.5% salary increase for 2015-16 or a 7.5% salary increase for 2015-16, a 5.5% increase for 2016-17 and a 4.5% increase for 2017-18. Both of RTA's proposals also include an increase to the health and welfare benefit cap. At the negotiation session on Tuesday, March 15, RTA and the District's negotiators agreed to declare an impasse. As a condition of impasse, the Public Employee Relation Board (PERB) will provide a mediator to assist RTA and the District in reaching an agreement.

The attached presentation was presented at the Riverbank Unified School District school board meeting on Tuesday, February 2, 2016.

Please click on the following link.

The purpose of the presentation was to share and discuss the current fiscal condition of the school district. It is important for everyone in the community to be aware of the budget as it is a guide for resource allocation to support students. In all school districts a major portion of a school district budget is personnel. The compensation for employees is determined through a collective bargaining process, usually referred to as negotiations. I’m pleased that the Riverbank Teachers Association (RTA) and the Classified School Employees Association (CSEA) are working with the District’s negotiation team through the negotiations process and am confident that an agreement will be achieved.

In order to be transparent, you will be able view all exchanged proposals on our website – click here.

Once again, I’m confident an agreement will be reached through the negotiations process. RUSD’s website has information on the multiple steps in the negotiation process – please click here. Over the last few years, the District has worked to make decisions that will improve the educational environment for our students while maintaining fiscal solvency.  I look forward to continuing to work with the Riverbank community to support our students.

The District and RTA have scheduled the following dates for continued negotiations;

  • February 18, 2016
  • March 3, 2016
  • March 4, 2016

There are currently no dates scheduled for negotiations with CSEA.
