JESPA Ratifies Historic Agreement on Pay


JESPA Ratifies Historic Agreement! 

August 19, 2021 


 The members of JESPA have spoken, the votes have been tallied, and the Tentative Agreement reached between the JESPA bargaining team and the district has passed with an overwhelming 97% voting in favor of the agreement.  A record number of members turned out to make their voices heard and vote! 

Now the ratified agreement must be presented to and approved by the Jeffco Board of Education at their next regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday, September 2nd at 6pm.  

There is much to celebrate this year as JESPA welcomes a new school year with no employee making under $15/hour, preschool workers enjoying union protection under the contract, and increased access to information about our rights as workers. 

We need to show up and attend this meeting wearing our red shirts in support of this historic agreement, workers rights, and the importance of a strong public education system for our students!

With respect and in solidarity-
