There has been some recent information given that if the teachers do
not agree to the non binding negotiations, then newly elected president
Greg Lucidi has said that he will not negotiate again until the Fall. I
am going to write to Mr. Lucidi and inquire about this. If this is
true, then basically, he is the one that will be forcing the teachers
to strike again. The board has been willing to meet, but not negotiate.
This doesn't make sense!! We still need to be putting pressure on both
the board and the union to continue to negotiate in good faith.
Let's hope that the state appointed negotiators can come to an
agreeable contract (that lasts at least 4 years, so that new
negotiating teams can be set up in the interium for both sides!)
I willpost Mr. Lucidi's response once I receive it.
