Labor Relations Wellness Check Programs
NJSBA has reimagined the way we provide our members with valuable Labor Contract Analyses and Salary Guide Analyses by offering a product more directly tailored to issues important to your district.
Teacher Contract Wellness Check
As part of this new initiative, public school districts will receive an analysis of two mandatory teacher contract clauses including expiring salary guides and healthcare; plus, analysis for up to three additional clauses of their choosing.
With each analysis, districts can also expect more expedient service, an optional virtual one-on-one session with an NJSBA staff member, and a legal update on public school negotiations.
The following topics are examples of the three additional contract clauses you may choose to include in your wellness check:
- Leaves of absence
- Grievance procedures
- Workday/school year
- Negotiations procedures
- Tuition reimbursement/professional development
Please note this dues based service is available once per district per school year (7/1 – 6/30).
*Additional analysis outside the five free annual teacher union contract clause reviews, are $150 per clause.
Teacher Salary Guide Wellness Check
Districts and their staff/board negotiations committee can get an optional virtual conference with an NJSBA staff member, labor credits toward Board Certification under the NJSBA’s Board Member Academy, a legal update concerning public school negotiations, and recent contract settlement data.
The teacher’s salary guide evaluation includes:
- A structural analysis of the base year, which is the last year of the expiring salary guide and the same base year of the union’s proposal.
- A cost of increment analysis of the expiring salary guide;
- A costing analysis of the first set of proposed salary guides
- A detailed memo outlining the findings
Please note this dues-based service is available once per district per school year (7/1 – 6/30).
*Additional unit salary guide analysis (examples include secretaries, custodians, paraprofessionals) and/or any subsequent counter-proposals is $150/hour.
Salary Guide Development Service
NJSBA offers a low-cost salary guide development service that is customized and tailored to meet the individualized needs of each district. Our experienced labor relations professionals can assist in the development of a salary guide that helps your district achieve its goals. Our assistance can even extend to negotiating salary guides with your union.
The cost for this service is $150 per hour.
