Process instigated by Trustees in April 2016: see comments
BCSD Trustees agreed to enter into a “one-time negotiation” with school district administrators regarding employment contracts. Both parties’ approval will be needed to ratify any decisions made, according to the approved motion.
School district administrators have become paid members of the Teamsters Union in anticipation of contract negotiations with the Board of Trustees. Two union negotiators were in attendance at tonight’s special meeting of the board. Negotiators have also attended the last two regular meetings of the BCSD Board of Trustees, as well as the working session of the Board after the regular September meeting, where they disrupted the meeting.
The trustees convened to a Closed Executive Session to “discuss administrator negotiations, consider records that are exempt from disclosure, and to discuss possible litigation,” according to the posted agenda. The full agenda for tonight’s special board meeting can be viewed here or on the BCSD website here. The motion to negotiate employment contracts with administrators was made and approved after the trustees reconvened to open session.
