Negotiations at the end of the negotiations for the KNA 2010-2012. It replaced only the previous Article 10. Approved by the BOT on 21.07.2011. The collective agreement is negotiated annually (unless both parties waive this right). Other articles may be opened during these negotiations, depending on previous agreements. All articles are open for negotiation at least every three years. It is therefore possible to have a CBA containing certain articles that have been negotiated and updated, while the rest of the CBA remains in force. For example, the 2010-2012 CBA (the “Handshake Book”) in the past contained all current articles, with an addition (Article 10, Employee Performance Evaluations) that replaced it.

Details are still being worked out, but a preliminary agreement is underway between the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District and the Unionville Chadds Ford Education Association (UCFEA) regarding a four-year contract renewal. The Board of Directors will decide on the agreement at its meeting on 16 April. The Unionville-Chadds Ford School District teacher contract contract expired on June 30, 2010; Discussions between the school administration and the Unionville-Chadds Ford Education Association teachers` union continued.
In late December, the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board appointed attorney Mariann E. Schick to resolve the negotiating lane with a Fact Finder report. (This is a formal process in which a neutral arbitrator is appointed to verify the respective positions of both parties and recommend arrangements for a possible settlement. The process is not binding and both parties can accept or reject the final report.) The four-year extension of the collective agreement with UCFEA will begin on July 1, 2019 and will continue until June 30, 2023. The agreement provides for a 2.99 percent increase in basic salaries for the district`s 338 professional employees. Payment for additional contracts would increase by 1 percent per year, and the current hourly wage rate of $42 per hour would be maintained. UCF`s proposed budget for 2011-12 is $71.4 million, with approximately $17,000 per student. The UCF School District intends to keep its tax increase at 1.4% or below the Act 1 limit. Of the $71.4 million, nearly 72 per cent of the budget is spent on personnel costs (salaries and social benefits).
The “Early Bird Tentative” agreement with the Education Association was reached at the March 19 school committee meeting announced and available online, although the final language has not yet been published. Work is underway to add an optional option for a qualified highly deductible health plan/health savings account for district medical plan participants, which will impact both Education Association members and the Board of Directors, which aligns with the current basic medical plan.

In the UCF School District, the school administration and the union have been working unsuccessfully on a new contract for more than a year. Parents and students are frustrated because the gap between the two sides has not changed dramatically since the discussions began. The PSSA is an assessment testing tool that is given to every student in Pennsylvania in 3rd to 8th and 11th grade in reading and math. Every Pennsylvania student in grades 5, 8 and 11 is assessed in writing and all students in grades 4, 8 and 11 are assessed in science. The Grade 11 National Assessment Review finds that TESD is #2 and UCF #3. The UCF School Board maintains that its proposals are aimed at maintaining quality care at a reduced rate and remuneration for its teachers. They indicate that economic times are tough and that the teachers` union has benefited a lot in times of good health, but they must now, like the others, participate in the victim.
