2015-16 Negotiations

The tentative bargaining agreement between SOSCA and Kern County Superintendent of Schools has been voted in as contract for 2015-2016 by the members of SOSCA.
A recap of the changes are as follows:

  • 3% COLA effective 07-1-2015 – you will see the increase on your paycheck on July 31, 2015
  • Discontinue the one day of sick leave allotted for regular classified employees working Extended School Year (see Rules of the Personnel Commission 8.23.A)  date June 2016
  • Regulatory Clean-Up Language in Appendix E Catastrophic Leave/Continuation of Pay Status to align wording with Ed Code 44043.5 and to change the reference from 5 month differential pay to 100 day 50% pay as voted on in 2014-15

Thank you for taking the time to vote and for your membership with SOSCA.
