As promised in the August edition of the bargaining update newsletter, I am providing regular updates to highlight the status of bargaining with the Teachers Association. As I shared in my last newsletter, the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) granted the Teachers Association’s request for impasse. Unfortunately, there was a miscommunication when scheduling our first impasse session with the state mediator and the bargaining teams did not meet on September 13. Impasse mediation is now scheduled to begin on November 4.
Other than the date change, there hasn’t been any bargaining activity to report since the last update.
