Committee Reports.... written...

Nurses Evaluation Form committee: Pat Wiley chair. No changes at this time. The committee met during summer vacation.

Membership: Rich is transitioning into the position. Loren has materials for any new members. Members present should offer an enrollment form for any new hires at each site. Our goal is 100% representation. Loren has received two new applications. Process will be: all new forms now go to Rich, HR is to give Rich the list, CTA also needs to be informed.

Communications: The web site needs to reflect the changes in staff: Change our CTA staff person from Lisa Eck to Norma Potter, add September minutes and add new officer information.

PAR Committee report: will meet again on the 26th. Three-part observation forms for approval.

Elections committee: Loren thanked the committee for all work completed regarding the mailings to membership.

Presidents report:

Negotiations update: Copies of the new bargaining unit Agreement should have all been distributed and is also available on the intranet. Negotiations are proceeding. Membership has received an update of progress so far by email.

Roster size violations must always be reported to the union and your principal. Principals are responsible for all student placements and must be held strictly to our contractual Agreement.
All teachers must report violations to the contract. Even if it is another teacher at your site who is being violated it is a serious matter and does affect you. Please read page 31 of the new Contract. It spells out class and roster size, as well as classroom space. Never forget that an injury to one is an injury to all. No one should be working in a hostile work environment, and the vast majority of us do not. We must rally in support of anyone who is being abused and not ever become tolerant of this behavior. Everyone suffers in a negative environment, but we can change it if we all unite and stand up for each other.

Old business

New member packets and calendars. Please take enough packets for new members at your site and a calendar for yourself and everyone at your site who may need one. You can also give these packets to all fee payers so they can see the value of membership.

Site visits: Loren will continue to visit sites as time permits. If you want your site or staff meeting to be next in priority, please let us know.

Treasurer reimbursements: Give receipts to Mary Burton if expenditure has been approved.

Loren summarized the UCLA SUMMER INSTITUTE which was held July30-August 4, 2006.
