Tentative Agreement Reached at Mount Diablo Unified School District

After months of fighting at the table for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, your Bargaining Committee is pleased to inform you that we reached a Tentative Agreement with the District on a new contract! Your rank-and-file negotiation committee is unanimously recommending a YES vote. Please click here to review the Tentative Agreement.

Some highlights of our Tentative Agreement include:

  • A 7% ongoing increase to your salary schedule retroactive to July 1, 2023.
  • A 3% ongoing increase to your salary schedule beginning July 1, 2024.
  • A total compensation study for the majority of classifications, with the results brought to the School Board.
  • A reopener for the 2025 – 2026 year for salary and benefits.
  • An agreement to create a committee that will look to permanently address FTE’s in the Food Services Department.
  • New Remote Work and On-Call Pay language for I.T. members.
  • An extra guaranteed hour for Board Drivers.
  • Improved language addressing promotions and grievances.
  • Fought back against constant District proposals that would have reduced OT Comp Time, reduced Call Back Time, removed bumping rights…and more!

We will be holding an in-person and virtual informational meeting to review the tentative agreement and answer any questions you may have:
