On Thursday, Friday and Saturday August 24-26, CSLEA and CalHR conducted bargaining sessions in an effort to address the remaining proposals and counter-proposals that are on the table. Tentative agreements were reached on a number of items including safety equipment and call back pay. CSLEA and CalHR also continued to fine tune the economic package which will be finalized early this week. The parties are sensitive to the legislative deadlines for submission of an agreement and CSLEA remains confident that a total tentative agreement will be reached this week. The parties are tentatively scheduled to resume bargaining today and will adjust the sessions as necessary to complete bargaining.
