Alameda, Calif. — Thursday, April 25, 2024 — At its April 16 public meeting, AUSD’s Board of Education voted to approve a 7% ongoing salary increase for all three of AUSD’s bargaining units:  the Alameda Education Association, CSEA-27, and CSEA-860. The unions have also ratified the agreements.
Of that salary increase, 6% is retroactive to July 1, 2023 and 1% is retroactive to January 1, 2024.
In addition, the unions and AUSD agreed that AUSD would increase its contribution to health benefits to a maximum of $1,021.41 per month ($12,256.00 per year), irrespective of how many family members are on the plan, an historically significant increase to benefits.
“This agreement makes a historic investment in retaining our talented workforce and making us more competitive for attracting new employees,” Tim Erwin, AUSD’s Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, told the Board of Education at the April 16 meeting.
The Alameda Education Association represents teachers, nurses, speech and language pathologists, and counselors. CSEA-27 represents office/technical workers and paraprofessionals), and CSEA-860 represents (custodial, maintenance, and food service workers. 
Money for the raise comes from several sources, including current and one-time state revenues that will be spread out over several years and current and future discretionary funds and LCFF supplemental funds.
“We continue to do our best to keep up with salary increases in other districts around the county,” says Superintendent Pasquale Scuderi, “despite the fact that we get less state revenue than many of these districts. Funding these raises will require us to make hard decisions over the coming years, but I am confident that our leadership team and the entire AUSD community will understand that this is in the interests of finding and keeping high-quality educators for the students in this town.”
Adds Board President Jennifer Williams, “The Board of Education would like to thank both bargaining teams for their persistence, creativity, and willingness to collaborate in the interests of AUSD employees. With the new contributions to health benefits, I think we have truly entered into a new phase of being able to support our staff and students.”
Non-represented management employees will receive the same salary and benefits increase.
