Palo Alto Educators Association (PAEA) and Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) resumed negotiations on March 13, 2019. The following Articles were discussed:

• Article III- Association Rights

• Article VI – Compensation and Benefits

The parties reached a Tentative Agreement on Article III - Association Rights.

The District and PAEA agreed to use the Interest Based Bargaining (IBB) process to begin negotiations over compensation. This process begins with each party sharing their interests – their underlying motivations – for negotiations. Then we look at the interests both parties share. Following clarification of interests, the parties moved to the next step of the IBB process: brainstorming options together.

These are ideas that may serve as potential agreements that address their interests. This brainstorming process will resume at the next meeting.

PAEA and PAUSD will resume negotiations on March 19, 2019.
