The Capistrano Unified school board will meet Tuesday night to approve the contract for nonteaching employees, such as librarians, instructional aides, administrative assistants and campus supervisors.
According to the tentative agreement with the California School Employees Association Chapter 224, employees who work 10 or more months out of the year will take seven furlough days -- that is, days not worked and not paid -- while employees who work less than 10 months will take six furlough days.
Also, the nonteaching employees’ salary schedule will be frozen for a year, meaning that there will be no automatic pay increases for reaching various milestones in time spent on the job, according to a staff report to trustees.
“The total estimated fiscal impact of this agreement is a savings to the district approximately $2.5 million for the 2013-2014 fiscal year,” the staff report states.
The contract is very different than the one approved for teachers in August. By contrast, the teachers only have two furlough days.
Management employees will have seven furlough days this year and salaries frozen for half a year.
After approving this contract, the only remaining employee group not having a signed agreement is the Teamsters Union.
The special meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the district headquarters, 33122 Valle Road in San Juan Capistrano.
