E.T.A. PROPOSED DUES INCREASE beginning 08/13

Maintain 100% President Release Time

dues increase needed for
DUES INCREASE NEEDED FOR:

Regular inflationary cost increases

100% president release cost

President release has never been fully funded. We began 100% release in fall ‘09, but have been paying for it partly out of the union’s savings account.

Goal: to bring in enough money each month to fund the president’s salary.

we are currently losing a significant amount of money per month
We are currently losing a significant amount of money per month.

We have not even paid out some of the “large ticket” items for the year (such as accountant’s fees, bargaining expenses, 100% president release, RIF costs, etc.).

the difference between budget projection and monthly expenses is 6 000 per month
The difference between budget projection and monthly expenses is $6,000 per month.

This is primarily due to 100% president release.

to attain solvency we would need to add a 10 00 monthly dues increase per member
TO ATTAIN SOLVENCY WE WOULD NEED TO ADD A $10.00 MONTHLY DUES INCREASE PER MEMBER.

We recognize the difficulty any increase presents given the fact that we haven’t had a raise since 2007. However, we must take steps to deal with the fact that we are deficit spending and our reserves are dwindling.

Therefore,

WE ARE REQUESTING A $10.00 DUES INCREASE

MONTHLY PER MEMBER.

current eta yearly dues are 349 does not include cta nea dues 34 90 per month
Current ETA yearly dues are $349 (does not include CTA/NEA dues) - $34.90 per month.

With the proposed increases:

yearly dues - $449 (including $10 monthly increase/$100 per year)

$44.90 per month (does not include CTA or NEA dues)

RECENT COST CUTTING MEASURES (WHERE DUES GO)

This year Rep. Council voted to limit ETA’s Scholarship contribution to $2,000 per year (the prior year was $3,000).

Food for ETA meetings is managed by one Exec. Board member who monitors money spent to ensure staying within budget.

Please remember that volunteers, many of whom are struggling to finish their day, conduct all ETA meetings and activities. We feel food being provided helps to get them through what would otherwise be an unbearably long day.

The revised bylaws now determine who (by categories) goes to which conferences. At the beginning of the school year a subcommittee decided to eliminate attendance at certain conferences, and limit attendance at others. All conferences relate directly to negotiations, union business, union training or teacher training.

Additionally, CTA and Mt. Hamilton provides scholarships to unions to encourage members to attend conferences. Not all conferences are paid for by our local association.

vital union work
VITAL UNION WORK:

Greater emphasis now on negotiations (in keeping with CTA recommendations)

Near constant negotiations with district as we have been unable to attain multi-year contracts

RIF processing & hearings (3 consecutive years)

President always available to members in case of problems on the job/during the work day

union payments to negotiators vs district payments to lawyer
Union payments to negotiators vs. district payments to lawyer

Union negotiators are paid $100/month, 10 months

a year, + $500 at signing of contract

Union chief negotiator is paid $150/months, 10

months a year, + $500 at signing

It’s difficult to ascertain exactly how much EESD pays its lawyer to negotiate for them, but most charge a retainer fee plus hundreds of dollars per hour.

union negotiator responsibilities
Union Negotiator Responsibilities

This is what your dues money pays for:

Daily:  30 minutes a day reading educational blogs and news sites and sharing to the team (chief negotiator)

Bargaining:  4-6 hour team meeting prior to each bargaining session (all outside of school hours, “at home” time)

Planning at school for each substitute & recovering at school after the absence

Bargaining cleanup that following day via email, phone, & text (all outside of school hours, “at home” time)

Attending Executive Board and other bargaining meetings

Attending CTA regional bargaining meetings

The $5 increase in 2009 and additional $6 increase in 2011 started us toward 100% President Release, and helped prepare us for the current fiscal crisis.

This additional $10 increase will maintain a full time president, allowing us to continue implementing improvements in communication (new text messaging) and defending teachers’ rights (IEP Grievance, etc.). With this increase we would stop the depletion of union savings.
