At the bargaining table June 8,
administrators of the Aromas-San Juan Unified School District
proposed layoffs, demotions, and reduced hours for a third of the
68 members of the Federation of Classified Employees. Most of the
member negotiators would feel the cuts personally.
Two visitors saved the day: A sympathetic member of the school
board joined the district team, and the CFT budget analyst joined
the classified team.
