Hello Fellow Classified Employee's and guests.
We Have a Contract!
Last week, we voted on the Tentative Agreement with the Matanuska Susitna Borough School District, for the contract that will expire in 2026. The vote came on the heels of a lengthy and sometimes contentious contract bargain that took 18 months to resolve.
“After a lengthy bargain I am happy to have presented this contract to our members and they have overwhelmingly voted to ratify the agreement,” said Rick Morgan, President of CEA. “I believe this contract is fair and will foster an environment that will attract and retain high-quality employees to best serve our students. Mat-Su Classified employees will finally start to see some economic relief in their paychecks after years of inflation.”

“I am greatly satisfied at the School Board’s approval of this contract so we can put this challenging bargain behind us,” said Morgan. “On behalf of the members of CEA I’d like to thank our bargaining team, and all of the classified educators who work day in and day out to support our Mat-Su students.”
MSCEA PACE committee has voted to support these candidates.
