DELTA has been successful in winning these rights for its members. While there are many components to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and we strongly suggest you read it through (available online on the Documents page), here are a few that are too good to miss.
- Job Security
You cannot be dismissed without just cause. In some systems, teachers can be dismissed without any warning for any reason.
- Masters Program Reimbursement
The Diocese will reimburse you for courses that are part of an approved Masters Program (please be sure to have approval in writing from the superintendent before enrolling). You can receive reimbursement of up to $350/credit and up to three classes in a calendar year.
- DELTA Representation in disciplinary meetings
If you believe you are being called into a meeting with an administrator for a disciplinary action--no matter how minor--you can have a DELTA representative come with you.
- Shortened Step Scale
Our current step scale has 20 steps; previous versions had 29. It might not seem like much, but it shaved almost a decade off the journey to maximum.
- Tuition Reduction for Members' Children in the Central Catholic Schools
After a year of teaching at one of our schools, your children can attend St. Peter Central Catholic, Holy Name, St. Peter Marian, or St. Bernard's tuition-free.
