NFT wants the money, not the language of Board's final offer

Meeting Number 67 Update:

Tonight the Board and the NFT met for 20 minutes face to face. The board restated its belief that the NFT should allow their membership to vote on the Council Rock salary propsal with Council Rock working conditions. The NFT position is that their membership has already spoken and have refused to vote on the Council Rock proposal.

It is the position of the Board's negotiation team that we have provided the NFT with a final proposal that is both generous and well within accepted language for bucks county schools. The NFT is interested in the Council Rock money but not in its language, which is tantamount to rejecting our offer.

The Board will honor its commitment to attend the meeting previously scheduled for next Wednesday, February 13th.
