March 6th Mediation Update

Dear SPFE Member,

Your SPFE bargaining team spent the day in mediation and is still at the table working hard to secure a fair contract with the district that invests in students and honors the work of educators.

At 5 p.m. today, we received a package of proposals from the district that covered issues in a number of our remaining proposals, including class size language, student mental health supports, and educator compensation. The bargaining team worked diligently to review the details of that offer and develop a counter proposal package that centers the needs of our students and honors the hard work of St. Paul’s Educational Assistants, SCSPs, and licensed educators. We just met with the district to present that proposal, and as of this moment every open proposal is with the district.

We are still at the bargaining table awaiting the district response. We will keep you posted on the status of our possiblestrike as soon as we know more. 

In Solidarity,

Your SPFE Bargaining Team
