CSA Announces Tentative Contract Agreement
CSA is pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative contract agreement with the city that achieves our union’s goals and addresses many of our member’s pressing concerns. We thank our members for standing together so faithfully during these negotiations while continuing to serve their students like the consummate professionals they are. We are proud to have secured an agreement that properly acknowledges their hard work, talent, and leadership.
CSA members look out for each other and stand up for the values we share. One of our most critical aims throughout this process was to take care of those members who hope to start a family. Those who protect and educate the city’s children deserve the time necessary to welcome their own children into the world, and we are proud to have secured Paid Parental Leave that provides eligible members with flexibility and security during such a significant period in their lives.
With this contract we have also taken a significant step towards achieving more equitable salaries for principals. In addition, we have secured a commitment from the DOE to establish a tenure framework that will provide clear and concise guidance for school-based and non-school-based supervisory tenure decisions. The agreement also provides all members with anti-retaliation protections, clarifies reversion rights, and guarantees more collaborative observations and evaluations.
