Your bargaining team had a very productive day. We began the day with a sidebar with the district bargaining team where our team asked clarifying questions about the district’s interpretation of the financial implications of our offers and theirs. The district also provided updated supposals on four articles. Of these four, we were able to provide counters on two and two are ready for tentative agreement.
We ended the evening by presenting a package proposal for settlement and to return our students to safe, sustainable, and equitable schools. The changes we proposed will close the gap between PPS’ and PAT’s proposals by $121.6 Million over the life of the 3-year agreement while maintaining the six priorities that are most important to PAT members.
Here is the proposal package we presented today.
