Options Vote Yes and suck it up for two years. May end up with 10 days instead of 9 days if the budget goes south or less days if budget improves. Options Vote no and return to the table. Vote No and move on to mediation. Still no deal; move forward to Fact Finding. Wait for report. Still no deal; district arbitrarily implements cuts and you have the ability to initiate a job action. Terrible Deal- So what now Larry?
