Negotiations began in late fall of 2017 for a successor agreement. We’ve met with the Board on:
December 13, January 16 (cancelled by Board), February 22, March 27, May 1. Some progress has been made; some editorial language items tentatively agreed upon. The sides are still wide apart on economic items of salary and health insurance.
– next scheduled meetings: May 22, June 13.
September 2017: Interested in Negotiations or playing a part? Take the time now to attend Negotiations and salary guide workshops and get involved in the Association to learn the process at the CCCEA Region I overnight, NJEA Summer and/or Winter Leadership conferences, the Jim George Collective Bargaining Summit, or contact me (Lou Russo) for more information. Any member may apply to serve on the Negotiations Committee. Anyone interested should send a written letter of interest by regular mail to the Executive Committee care of the VEA office or via email to Kathy Serrano at VEAKSerrano@gmail.com. Your Building Representatives should be speaking with you in one on one meetings to help determine bargaining priorities. If you have ideas or needs, please forward them to us via mail or email.
