Summary We reluctantly place on the agenda for information purposes the reduction and/or elimination of the positions listed on the attached resolution. Skyrocketing medical insurance premiums continue to be the primary source of the District's budget deficit. The Kaiser rate for medical insurance increased 6.84% from the 2010 rate and if it remains uncapped, the District will pay $23,027,792 in 2011 and approximately $27,224,287 by 2013. Meanwhile, our District has suffered a 16.76% reduction in revenue limit funding over the past three years and revenue limit funding is estimated to decrease by $1,937,339 in the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Notwithstanding revenue reductions, the District has continued to cover all increased benefit costs for employees. We simply can no longer afford to continue doing so. Certificated personnel are not subjet to mid year layoffs due to contract provisions. Managers and supervisors are not on the list because they have already agreed to cap the District's contribution to their benefits beginning in January 2011. We have been unable to negotiate a similar cap with its other employee units. Accordingly, we must have the flexibility to achieve budget savings by reducing or eliminating positions as described on the attached resolution. The District and CSEA entered into a Tentative Agreement on September 28, 2010. The union will vote on whether or not to ratify the agreement on October 12, 2010. Therefore, we are not proposing any further CSEA reductions or eliminations.
Funding See attached resolution.
