How do we bargain our first Union Contract?

Once we have built strong majority support, submitted our union support petitions to PERB and been recognized as a union, administration is legally obligated to negotiate with our ACE negotiating team in good faith. This means administration can no longer make unilateral changes to working conditions without negotiating with us.

At this point in the process, Clovis educators will select a diverse group of educators from different schools, grade, subject, and professional areas to be our ACE union bargaining team. We will get input from all our colleagues through meetings and surveys. We will then use that information as we negotiate our first union contract.
