JESPA Collective Bargaining Agreement
Collective Bargaining Agreement 2019-2025
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!
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. Many severely underpaid paraprofessionals and food service workers got a 25% to 30% pay increase due to this win.
