Council Of School Supervisors And Administrators Announces Union Has Reached A Tentative Contract Agreement With New York City

(NEW YORK CITY) - The Council of School Supervisors and Administrators (CSA) has reached a Tentative Contract Agreement with New York City that achieves the Union’s goals and addresses many of New York City school leaders’ pressing concerns.

CSA Local 1/American Federation of School Administrators represents Principals, Assistant Principals, Supervisors, Directors and Education Administrators in New York City's 1,800 public schools and central offices.

Earlier this week, CSA’s Executive Board unanimously approved the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) to send to a vote to General Membership.  A Membership meeting to review the contract and answer member questions will be held on February 26th.

This contract takes a significant step towards achieving more equitable salaries for principals, Union Officials said.

In addition, the agreement secures a commitment from the Department of Education to establish a tenure framework that will provide clear and concise guidance for school-based and non-school-based supervisory tenure decisions, they said.

On another front, the agreement also provides all CSA Members with anti-retaliation protections, clarifies reversion rights, and guarantees more collaborative observations and evaluations, the Union said.

“CSA Members ‘have more than earned this contract with their incredible talent, professionalism, leadership and dedication to the families they serve,’” CSA President Mark Cannizzaro said.

“Those who ‘protect and educate’ the city’s children ‘deserve the time necessary to welcome their own children into the world’ and we are ‘proud to secure’ Paid Parental Leave that provides eligible Members ‘with flexibility and security during such a significant period in their lives.’ This agreement ‘also provides fair’ compensation ‘and maintains benefits’ for our Members.  In addition, we’ve ‘taken a significant step toward achieving more equitable salaries’ for Principals. These advances, ‘along with many common sense’ workplace protections, ‘will help enable our school leaders to continue to focus on their guiding priority of ensuring that all students receive a first-rate education’,” he said.
