Negotiating With Power
Collective bargaining is the process in which you and your coworkers come together to form the HSEF Bargaining team. This team negotiates your contract with the Hillsborough County School District to determine the terms of your employment, including pay, benefits, hours, leave, job health and safety policies, ways to balance your work & life, and more. Negotiating in this way solves workplace issues more effectively and efficiently than going it alone. It is also the best means for raising wages! HSEF has ensured your wages are higher and you recieve better benefits and better working conditions each year!
Common things that are collectively bargained include things like:
- Pay Equity
- Leave (sick or personal)
- Workplace health & safety standards
- Working condition agreements
