As we have reached the end of our first agreement with LPVEC and the districts to have been paid for the first several weeks, LPVEC is continuing to negotiate with the districts and the Union to get a plan moving forward. Of course the Union is advocating for full pay of standard hours moving forward until, at least, the May fourth deadline. For now Drivers and Monitors may file an unemployment claim for the week beginning April 6th. Be advised if you do this and a deal is reached to pay drivers you will need to cancel the claim and potential pay back money to unemployment if collected. We hope to know more by the end of the week so folks may want to hold off on filing claims until then.
