School Committee Updates

Posted on: November 8, 2011

[ARCHIVED] School Committee Update on the Status of Collective Bargaining Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Last night, the School Committee arrived at our scheduled mediation session with the AEA (teacher's union) believing we were very close to reaching an agreement on a new teacher's contract, given the significant progress made in recent weeks.

Unfortunately, the union negotiating team spent the entire mediation session in caucus, did not make or respond to any proposals, and did not communicate with the members of the School Committee bargaining team in any way. After more than two hours, the mediator dismissed the School Committee bargaining team without scheduling any further sessions. However, the mediator continued to meet with the AEA negotiating team, and we are now awaiting word from the mediator. We will keep you posted as events warrant.
