Dear Bargaining Unit Member,

Please find attached a summary of the Education Association of St. Lucie (CTA, CU, ProTech) signed agreements with the St. Lucie County School Board for compensation and benefits for 2020-2021 and additional language agreements signed on or after June 27, 2019.

The ratification vote will take place on Monday, November 30, 2020 at the EASL office at 371 East Midway Road in Ft. Pierce.  The Letters of Understanding (LOU’s) are listed below.

Voting will take place ONLY on November 30, 2020.  All eligible bargaining unit members may vote between 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. You must bring picture ID.  The polls will close at 7:00 p.m. and no one will be allowed to join the voting lines after that time.  Anyone in line at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote.  Bargaining unit members wishing to vote an absentee ballot may do so by coming to the EASL office during the office hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 20, 2020 to cast a ballot if not able to do so on the date of the ratification election.  Ballots cannot be sent to you by mail or interoffice mail. We are working on a drive-thru voting process at our office weather permitting for ratification election day.  More information to come.

To be eligible to vote, you must be part of the Education Association of St. Lucie bargaining unit which means you are either instructional, professional technical/specialized (I.T., area transportation manager, OT/PT, etc.) or are an education support personnel (non-instructional staff including clerical, paraprofessionals, aides, cafeteria and custodial managers, etc.)  You do not have to be a member of the union to vote but you must be represented by the bargaining unit. You may not vote if you are an executive secretary, custodial or cafeteria staff under CWA bargaining unit, full/part-time subs, and those employees who are not part of the defined bargaining unit.
