Our tentative agreement was ratified by the School Committee last Wednesday. The approved agreement will then head to the mayor’s office this week, then on to the City Council for a vote on November 7. We have spoken with City Council President Stephen Murphy and expect that all will go smoothly. We thank the council and the council president for their help.
The pay increase for all members is scheduled to be in place by the end of November, and the retroactive is slated to be paid before the winter break.
We have revised our summary of the main contract items a bit, and you may read the revised summary.
