Negotiations Update

Representatives from the Board of School Directors and Neshaminy Federation of Teachers met at a negotiating session on September 3, 2008. This was the 11th meeting of the parties since January, including three meetings conducted in front of a State-appointed Fact Finder in the Spring.

This was also the third meeting since July in the presence of a State mediator. The focus of these latest meetings has been on health benefits. The Board has continued to push for changes which will lower health care expenditures that have a major impact on the District’s budget.
