Clovis Unified and school psychologists union declare impasse

Clovis Unified and the Association of Clovis Educators, which represents the district’s school psychologists, declared an impasse in contract negotiations that have gone on for more than a year, the Fresno Bee reported.

Pay, staffing and grievance procedures remain points of disagreement after dozens of bargaining sessions, according to the Bee. The union requested a 14.5% raise, and the district countered with 13.5%. The union maintains that the district is well within their means of being able to provide the extra 1% raise, which they estimate will cost around $100,000, according to the Bee.

After declaring an impasse, the state’s Public Employment Relations Board will appoint a mediator to guide negotiations.
