1 Framework for Labor-Management Collaboration: Serving Local Communities During the COVID-19 Emergency Issued: April 1, 2020 I. Introduction and Purpose The COVID-19 emergency has generated unprecedented and myriad challenges for school communities across California. School leaders representing both employers and employees have managed these uncertainties to the best of their abilities. Moving forward, this framework—jointly endorsed by the undersigned state leadership—is intended to provide basic principles for how school employers and employees should collaborate, including the involvement of local exclusive representatives in resolving employment issues. Many local agencies and bargaining units have already resolved issues impeding progress on school priorities. This framework is not intended to disrupt those arrangements, especially insofar as they help address the urgent need to serve students while ensuring staff safety. Rather, this framework is intended to assist those still working to reach agreement and to spur collaboration, including local agencies and bargaining units, as the challenges created by the COVID-19 emergency continue to emerge. This framework represents the basic principles for local agreements. Parties are encouraged to address additional local needs through open, ongoing, and frequent communication and collaboration. Endorsing Organizations: California Department of Education Association of California School Administrators California School Boards Association California County Superintendents Educational Services Association California Association of School Business Officials Small School Districts' Association California Teachers Association California Federation of Teachers California School Employees Association Service Employees International Union (CA) California Labor Federation AFSCME California
