January 26th session cancelled

Mr. Cairns, Labor Mediator, Bureau of Mediation, PA Department of Labor and Industry, requested / recommended that we postpone our January 26, 2012 meeting. Instead he requested a mediated off-site, off record discussion on the process of Act 88 final best offer arbitration with one attorney from each party. The NFT and the District agreed to the postponement in order to move the Act 88 arbitration process forward.

Your school board wants to reassure the community that this next meeting is only to establish a process for moving forward through the state-mandated, non binding arbitration. We are still committed to transparency in keeping the public informed of our progress in negotiations. Please stay Tuned for further updates.
