ESP Bargaining – Restart Update #4
Tonight’s negotiation was brief. After keeping us waiting for just under an hour to start, the School Committee apologized asked for more time to finalize their new salary scale proposal. Currently, several district personnel are quarantined and the SC did not feel comfortable presenting the proposal until it was reviewed by their staff. The SC promised that the new salary scale would be given to the ESP Bargaining Team by Monday, and we agreed to follow up with a meeting on Tuesday, December 15th from 5:30-6:30 pm to discuss the proposal and the committee’s rationale.
The ESP Bargaining Team is scheduled to meet on Thursday, December 17th from 3:30-5:30 to go over the details of the proposal and again on January 13, 2021 with the School Committee to resume negotiations.
