Fellow PAT Members,
At approximately 12:30 AM Monday, your PAT Team and the District reached a tentative agreement on the return to in-person education under a Hybrid model.
The process of arriving at a full COVID-19 MOU began in late July of 2020, and we finally have completed that process. Our team will meet with the PAT Executive Board to present the agreement, and as quickly as possible, we will present the agreement to the entire membership. If possible, members will have the opportunity to review and discuss the agreement during the normal staff meeting time on Tuesday afternoon, but that must be agreed to by PPS HR.
We want to thank the almost 400 members who stayed with us via YouTube on a Sunday until late in the evening for all of the support. The emails so many of you sent, and the rally and organizing that so many of you took part in made it possible to move the District to the agreement we now have.
We look forward to presenting the terms for ratification as quickly as we can produce the materials and prepare the presentation.
Your PAT Bargaining Team-
Steve Lancaster, Chair
Portland Association of Teachers
