Jeffco management counters on compensation – How do you feel about it?

We know that money can be a controversial topic. And it’s also an important topic. How will compensation this year impact your personal life? Your family? Your career? Your ability to work only one job, or two or three?

For those who are feeling undervalued as Jeffco continues to lag behind surrounding districts – will you join with your colleagues to stand up and fight for the district to do more?

Management’s financial presentation and proposal starts at the 38 minute mark.
(see our handy side by side comparison below). Mrs. Dorland said that she was uninterested in “playing games” and going back and forth with proposals and counter proposals.

She stated that this is what the district can pay.

She suggested it was their last, best, and final offer on compensation. We seriously hope that is not the case and plan to put together a counter to their proposal.

How do you feel about this proposal? How do your colleagues feel about it? Go have the face to face conversation. It’s been a very long year – reconnect with your shared values around our profession. Talk about what folks are willing to do, what it takes to get there.

Ultimately whether or not they move on their proposal will be up to our membership and how we continue to organize and push together.
