I am emailing all Units, D, B and A, so that everyone is fully informed. Please do not immediately hit delete if you are not a Unit D member.
I am happy to report, that after two years without a contract, Unit D has voted in favor to ratify a three year contact! This contract will extend to school year 2016-2017. Thank you to everyone who came to the ratification meeting! I appreciate members' investment and involvement in your Union.
Now that it has been ratified by Unit D members, it will need to be voted upon at the next School Committee meeting. This will be on June 25th. At that time, school committee members will review and ask questions about the MOA. The MOA will not take effect until School Committee members vote in favor.
I am asking all members, Unit D, A and B, to attend this meeting to show support for the amazing paraprofessionals who we work with everyday. This is not a political action, no one will be asked to speak. It is simply a way to say, without words, that we all support Unit D and we stand strong as a Union.
School Committee meetings are held at the Weymouth High School, Humanities Center at 7:00pm. Please, consider attending.
Finally, thank you to the Unit D negotiating team, Joni Cederholm, Millie Ficcara, Maureen Mohr, and Maura Eaton for their commitment and dedication as they negotiated a fair and reasonable contract.
