There is no news on negotiations. At our last formal session on March 23, we presented the School District and the city with a comprehensive list of proposals. We followed that up with a written list a week later, and we are still awaiting their response.
For many of the items, we’ve been waiting for a response since early February. For some, we’ve been waiting even longer.
No other bargaining sessions have been scheduled. Our best guess: The department and the city have decided to push off the settling of this contract until sometime next school year.
Remember their purposeful delay the next time the district leadership says how much it “values and respects its educators.” Remember also that we have been offered an eight percent increase over four years while another city union has received an 11 percent increase over the same four years.
‘We greatly value our teachers and recognize the tremendous impact they have on improving students’ lives. They make a difference, each and every day,’ said Boston Public Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang. Source.
