As of today here is what we know would happen in the event of a teachers strike:
- 12 month employees would continue to report to work as normal.
- 11 month employees would be off for the first 5 days of the strike and would report back to work on the 6th day unless the strike ended before that in which case they would report back on the first day that classes resume.
- 10 month employees would be off for the first 15 days of a strike and would report back to work on the 16th day unless the strike ended before that in which case you would report back on the day classes resume.
- 9 month employees would be off for the first 24 days of a strike and would report back on the 25th day unless the strike ends before that in which case you would report back when classes resume.
- All employees will continue to be paid during the time off for the strike and your insurance will still be in effect.
- Any time you are off will have to be added to the end of your normal last day to honor your contracted work calendar. If for some reason the strike runs so long that you would end up having to work more than your contracted number of days for your category, or they choose to not make up a certain number of days, we will have to negotiate with the district to determine how you will be paid.
- If you are not comfortable crossing the picket lines to return to work before the teachers strike is over you are allowed to take sick, personal, vacation (if you have it) or dock days with no repercussions to you per the district. Of course you must use all your paid leave time first then dock days (for which you will not be paid) if our understanding is correct.
- We hope this helps but if you have any other questions feel free to contact one of your executive officers and we will try to get an answer for you. As of today, we do not yet know how the district will contact you to let you know when to come back to work if the strike lasts less than the number of days you will be off but as soon as we hear anything we will let you know.
