Negotiations Update

Looking towards the holiday break, your bargaining team wanted to provide everyone an update.

After the October bargaining session, KPBSD leadership rejected our package proposal. The District stubbornly refuses a salary increase on the pay scale. The district also refuses to shoulder their fair share of health care costs and instead continues to shift costs to employees. Rather than work toward a contract, KPBSD leadership made it clear that they are willing to spend money to fund consultants and administrative programs rather than paying for their current employees.

To Members: Healthcare

Since July 1, 2018, KPBSD educators have been working without a contract. Despite our efforts to bargain in good faith with the district, they have been unwilling to provide us with an offer that would address some of the most pressing issues we face; salary, health insurance, and contract duration. The district has received over $2 million in additional funds from the State of Alaska for next fiscal year, and stands to receive even more the following year. Even with this additional money, the district has yet to provide any initial financial offers to our bargaining teams.
