Natomas Unified and CSEA #745 Reach Tentative Agreement on a 3-Year Contract

NUSD and our local labor partners at CSEA #745 agreed to a 3-Year Contract Agreement that provides our classified employees with an 11% ongoing raise over the next three years, with 10% coming in the next two years. In addition, NUSD and CSEA #745 agreed to 5% on one-time money in 2022-23, and 2% more in 2023-2024, to help address inflation. There was also an increase in Natomas Unified’s contribution to each employee’s health/welfare benefits of $90/month, as well as a recognition of longevity, and an agreement to increase professional growth. While the agreement included more for both partners, there was quick agreement that our classified employees had led the way during the pandemic, many becoming a form of first responders, feeding students and cleaning spaces when we knew very little about COVID. Their courage and commitment to students showed how much this group of employees cares for students, their families and the organization. This love for students and work ethic continues each day. Our classified employees represent, among other positions, the nutrition services workers, custodians, office support, grounds crew, technology team, campus safety specialists and many others. This is the second in a row 3-year agreement between NUSD and CSEA #745.
