After 18 months without a contract, the bus drivers and paraeducators negotiate a settlement after day-long bargaining session
BRANDON, Vt. – The bus drivers and paraeducators of the Rutland Northeast Supervisory Union reached a tentative agreement on a contract with the district’s boards today, averting a strike that was authorized to begin Tuesday.
“I am pleased that we and the boards were able to reach a tentative agreement that keeps us all where we want to be: in our classrooms and driving our buses,” said Jennifer Mallory, the chief negotiator and co-president of the Rutland Northeast Education Association Paraeducators and Bus Drivers Unit. “As friends, neighbors, and fellow parents of the community, we are glad we and the boards were able to negotiate a settlement.”
Details of the contract will be released after it has been ratified by both the association and the boards.
THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!
