Your bargaining team reached a tentative settlement for salary and benefits. This is an agreement covering the upcoming 09-10 school year AND the 2010-2011 school year.
Full details of the agreement will be provided at the September 1st PEA general membership meeting, tentatively scheduled for 3:15 p.m. Voting to ratify the agreement will occur in buildings between September 2 and 8.
The school board will vote on the settlement at their August meeting, so our ratification vote will complete the process (if the Board and we both vote yes).
Many thanks go to our bargainers who spent hours in sometimes very frustrating negotiation sessions and additional countless hours away from the table working out details, crunching numbers and planning the next steps.
Your bargaining team members are Nicole Berish, Carol Bouabdelloaui, Gaye Aaberg and Rich Hruska. If you see them before school starts, be sure to thank them for the time and hard work.
Another reminder that if you have not already done so, please get your payroll preference notice in to the administration office to satisfy IRS regulations.
Feel free to send comments or questions via the “comment” section on this site. (Sorry — specific details of the agreement cannot be released until September 1.)
