Board of Ed Meeting

Read LCCEF President Robin Geyer’s message to the board here.  It speaks to the lack of respect Classified staff are shown by administration and the board.  Well said Robin!


General membership Meeting – 6/17/2019 @ 12:05pm

I know, that was earlier today. The good news is that it was recorded and will be available on to view very soon.  If you were not able to attend in person, or watch as it streamed on Zoom, check back tomorrow for a link to watch the recording.


Bargaining – Economic Reopener

Bargaining sessions have been discontinued until July when we will continue bargaining the economics.  Check these weekly messages, or the calendar at, for future dates.

Classified members are welcome and encouraged to attend the sessions. We recognize the hardship for some employees who are unable to take personal time to join; consider taking a late lunch and eat with us. As a reminder, sessions start at 1 p.m. in Center, Room 303. Even staying for 15 minutes and joining in solidarity will make an impact.  Please be sure to coordinate with your manager. Sitting in on bargaining can not be done on paid time, so you will need to use a lunch hour, break or personal/vacation time and be sure that attending does not negatively impact your daily work.

Thank you to those members showing support by wearing red on Fridays, sitting in on Bargaining sessions and displaying posters We really appreciate the support!

Details about bargaining meetings will be posted each Monday and referenced in the weekly communications update (just like this).  All posts will be available through the Bargaining Committee page on the website.

Our latest Bargaining Update is after the meeting on June 7, 2019.  Please send questions, or support, to the bargaining team.  You can also use the forums to discuss bargaining, but please remember to keep it professional.  


Insurance Committee

2019-20 Insurance Information and Links
This page will be updated as we find more information to educate us on our new insurance and resources.  Please check here first if you have questions about coverage, rates or if a specific doctor is available to you.

Please watch for an announcement coming soon from HR with dates and times of Insurance 101 information sessions.


Joint Insurance Committee composed of 10 classified members and 7 managers.  

*** Note there is no decision to go to OEBB.  The membership will vote on insurance.***

Do Your Part for Bargaining

The bargaining team needs your help!

Office Signs

If you have an office with a highly visible window and you would like a “Fair Contract NOW” sign, contact and we’ll get you one.  If you aren’t up to a big sign, get a smaller version here.  It will look great on your office door, or in your cubicle.  

Wear red on Fridays  

The bargaining team needs administration to see that the Classified union stands together.  Looking out the window on the 3rd floor of the Center Building during bargaining and seeing red shirts helps more than you know!
