Classified SAUSD employees reject tentative agreement by 85%

When the Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) announced on August 12 that they had reached a tentative agreement for the 2007-08 school year with the California School Employees Association (CSEA) – Local Chapter 41, Board President Jose Hernandez couldn’t hide his glea. Here is what Hernandez had to say at the time, according to an SAUSD press release:

“We effectively collaborated with CSEA in being able to restore several key full-time positions and bringing back many valued classified employees with benefits.  Because of the cooperation and willingness to work together, we can now look forward to the opening of the school year.”

However, on August 23rd one of our readers posted this comment:

For those Classified Employees who voted on the defeat of SAUSD / CSEA Tentative Agreement. We did it! 85% NO VOTES, 15% YES VOTES.

Don’t think we’ll allow you to sell us out again!

Looks like Hernandez blew it.  This guy fired his own Aunt, who raised him as her own son, when the classified employee bloodbath ensued.  This despite the fact that according to SAUSD Trustee John Palacio the district has the money to keep these folks employed.  Many of these folks live in Santa Ana – I am sure they will relish voting for anyone other than Hernandez on Nov. 4.
