Your team met with the District representatives on Thursday, February 19. As indicated in the previous post, bargaining advanced at a snail's pace. Although it might be hard to believe, an hour can be spent discussing the inclusion or deletion of a single word from the contract. It would be inaccurate to say that no progress has been made. We are working through the many contract articles open for discussion, and have agreed in principle on a few, but nothing is yet subject to formal agreement. We remain hopeful that the process will accelerate at our next meeting.
Your team has pressed that compensation must be discussed at the next session. The District has agreed. This should make the next post to this site a bit more interesting. We thank you, as always, for your support during this arduous process.
On behalf of your team,
