Retirement Incentive Update--take 4!
The HEA Bargaining Team continues to negotiate a retirement incentive that works for you, our members.
To recap, here is a bulleted list of our negotiations to date:
HEA's original proposal (12/13/21) asked for an investment of $675,000 for 30 retirees ($22,500/per 30 retirees).
The District countered (1/14/22) with an investment offer of $360,000 for 40 retirees ($9,000/per 40 retirees).
HEA was willing to negotiate (1/20/22) a lower investment of $540,000 for 30 retirees ($18,000/per 30 retirees).
The latest district proposal (2/2/22) keeps the investment offer at $360,000, but with 30 retirees at $12,000.
HEA countered (2/4/22) with an investment of $450,000 for 30 retirees at $15,000.
We hope to hear something from the district in a timely manner, as we know that our members are weighing decisions based on this negotiation.
