Bargaining Proposal Information

Fellow Members of the RTA,

I hope everyone has been able to handle this week’s weather safely. It will feel good to be back in front of our students tomorrow.

As I hope you have heard, the Professional Negotiating Committee has been planning an info session in advance of opening contract bargaining next week. The volunteers serving on the committee have worked hard to turn your suggestions from this fall into a set of proposals to put before central office and the school committee.

At the Negotiating Team’s most recent meeting, we discussed how we can best include all members of our union as we begin the bargaining process. Our timing for communication is unfortunately tight, in large part because of this week’s closings, but I am excited to announce that we will be holding a vote on the proposals at the meetings on Tuesday February 3.

To be considerate of teachers at all schools, we will present proposals and take ballots at both3:15 and 4:15 meetings.  Both meetings will be held in the Revere High Cafeteria.

Because the details of bargaining can be sensitive, we need to have this vote in person. Please do your very best to come, listen, and show your support of the Revere Teachers Association. Help us get the word out about the importance of this meeting to your union.

Thank you,

Erik Fearing
