DAILY UPDATE #69-- 6/25/2020
- AASD OFFICE CLOSURE
AASD will be sending out a Daily Update, Monday-Friday, throughout the school closure period. The Weekly Update will continue as usual on Thursdays with the typical news and information for AASD members. The AASD Office will remain closed during the period of time the schools/district are closed. AASD staff will be working remotely and can be reached at the contact information at the end of this Update.
AASD has created a Google Form for AASD Members to report issues, questions or concerns regarding work-related issues and the COVID-19 virus. Any issues, questions or concerns submitted via the Google form will be shared daily with the District. AASD will then share the answers to issues, questions or concerns submitted as those answers are received from the district. You may also share your gratitude for another AASD member, district personnel, etc. via the same link.
The link to share issues/questions/concerns/gratitude is:
Please do not share this link outside of AASD membership (classified and certificated management/supervisors). The link will be active until this crisis is over. PLEASE CHECK THE DISTRICT’S WEBSITE TO ENSURE YOUR ISSUE/QUESTION/ CONCERN HAS NOT ALREADY BEEN ADDRESSED THERE.
NOTE: All previous AASD Daily Updates and Weekly Updates are located on the AASD Website www.aasdcs.org if you need to refer back to them for information.
- IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE COVID-19 MOU BETWEEN THE DISTRICT AND AASD
As you likely know, the MOU’s AASD negotiated expire on June 30, 2020. AASD attempted to negotiate an extension of the AASD MOU (which includes the hazard pay) through July or at least through the end of the year-round calendar. After discussions with the district, the district’s position is that they will not extend the MOU past June 30. Therefore, the provisions of the MOU (including hazard pay) end on June 30, 2020. We know this is disappointing, particular to employees in the AASD units who are physically reporting to work in July. Any work requiring an AASD-represented employee to report physically to work on June 30 or prior is eligible for the hazard pay.
- BARGAINING IMPACTS AND EFFECTS OF SCHOOL REOPENING
Bargaining will commence on July 2 between AASD and the District. We are scheduled to receive a presentation on July 2 and to bargain on July 9 and 10. AASD Members in Good Standing will be kept apprised via the Daily and Weekly AASD Updates. More information to come.
