Negotiations Update 02-02-2016

The District and ETA had a full day of constructive negotiations, exchanging a number of package proposals that contain many common elements. By the end of the day the package proposals had the same terms on compensation, but differences continued to exist on interrelated issues involving secondary class size, PE class size, salary steps and the transfer article. Parties mutually agreed that the help of a mediator would be useful, and we will jointly file for impasse.

As a reminder, the articles that were sunshined and opened include class size, transfers, benefits, and salary.
