On June 13, 2018, the Moses Lake School District (MLSD) Bargaining Team met with the Moses Lake Education Association (MLEA) Bargaining Team as part of the bargaining process. The MLEA represents all certificated staff in our district including:
- Occupational Therapists
- Physical Therapists
Prior to today’s meeting, the groups had worked together four times this spring. Today’s session did not reach a final agreement. The district presented an MLEA salary schedule proposal that is reflective of our budgeting estimates of what is affordable with the new changes to state funding for schools, and of previous contractual commitments. Current 2017-2018 Certificated Salary Schedule. The MLEA offered a counterproposal of an MLEA salary schedule. Additionally, there was conversation and discussions regarding Shared Decision Making (Article IV; Section C). While a final decision and agreement were not reached today, another bargaining session has been scheduled for July 19.
