Ucfsd Collective Bargaining Agreement
Negotiate at the end of the negotiations for the 2010-2012 CBA. 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 items are ready to negotiate at least every three years. It is therefore possible to have a CBA containing certain items that have been negotiated and updated, while the rest of KBA remains in effect. For example, in the past, the 2010-2012 CBA (the “handshake book”) had all the articles in progress, with a supplement (Article 10, employee performance evaluations) that it replaced.

The Unionville-Chadds School District teacher contract expired on June 30, 2010.
Discussions continued between the school board and the Unionville-Chadds Ford Education Association teachers` union. In late December, the Pennsylvania Council on Relations appointed lawyer Mariann E. Schick to resolve the conduct of the negotiations through a Fact Finder report. (This is a formal process in which a neutral arbitrator is appointed to review the negotiating positions of both parties and recommend provisions for a possible settlement. The process is non-binding and both parties can accept or reject the final report.) Details are still being worked out, but an interim four-year contract extension agreement is being worked out between the Unionville-Chadds Ford School District and the Unionville Chadds Ford Education Association (UCFEA). The Board of Directors will vote on the agreement at its April 16 meeting. The four-year extension of the collective agreement with the UCFEA will begin on July 1, 2019 and continue until June 30, 2023. The agreement provides for a 2.99 per cent increase in base salaries for the borough`s 338 employees. The payment of the additional contracts would increase by 1% per year, and the current hourly wage of $42 per hour would be maintained.
The proposed 2011-12 UCF budget is $71.4 million, with approximately $17K per student. The UCF School District intends to maintain its tax increase at or below the 1.4% limit of Bill 1. Of the $71.4 million, nearly 72% of the budget is spent on staff costs (salaries and benefits).
