July 28th Negotiations Session

We met today with the district negotiators at our office. The district made a new economic proposal and we responded to their language proposal, while offering new language of our own. After all the early work and effort our members put in this past winter and spring*, we are concerned that we are not making the progress we had hoped for. Watch for a mailer with specifics coming to your home mid-August.

-We'll keep you posted - your negotiators,

Paul, Sandy, Vicki, LeMoyne, David, Gary, and Julie

*Our early work included voting away control over our portion of staff development set-aside funds, using retiree savings to save positions, and meeting with the district early to reach agreement on the district’s financial picture.
