Windham Nh Collective Bargaining Agreement

A new contract was not approved until 2014. This two-year contract began a disturbing trend, which did not provide for the adaptation of the COLA to stages 1 – 13. Instead, WEA negotiators developed two additional steps at the top of the payroll plan; Step 14 in year 1 and stage 15 in year 2 – which allowed to increase costs without adjustments of COLA for the lower stages (see chart above). The agreement not only reduced the district`s competitive appeal to attract the best and brightest potential teachers, but also to keep them. Please note that in some markets, the rules of the collective agreement would apply to the pharmacy technician. “During this crisis, distance learning is a necessary temporary response that protects the health and safety of our students, their members and their families,” said Megan Tuttle, President of NEA-NH. “We are pleased to reach this agreement to ensure continuity and consistency in the training of our students and recognize the important contribution made by each teacher, regardless of their professional description. We look forward to achieving the same result in districts across the country. “While each professional organization generally negotiates with its board of directors, we have been able to work together to reach this common agreement for the benefit of all students, teachers and staff in the district,” said Travis Thompson, joint chair of the SAU 16 commission. “Because of the unprecedented nature of this pandemic, we believed that we needed to respond in an unprecedented way to enable educators to complete their work and support student learning while working remotely.” The temporary agreement also allowed for an amended April break, which took place from Wednesday, April 8 to Friday, April 10. Covid-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization earlier this year and led Governor Chris Sununu to declare a state of emergency in New Hampshire and President Donald Trump declared a national state of emergency. It`s an untenable trend. Negotiators at the Windham and WEA Board table have done our district a disservice, and most importantly…

to our children. And it`s about the kids, isn`t it? For school districts to succeed, it is essential to adjust the salary plan upwards to offset inflation, to remain competitive at all levels of experience — to continually attract the best and brightest teachers at all levels. Inflation adjustments are called cost-of-living adjustments, or COLA. they don`t really have an argument and the right answer should be an exciting round of “HAHAHAHAHAHA!” followed by a chorus of “Up Yours” (yes, I`ve had enough of these unworthy louts with the holier-than-thou imposture of the moral progressive self-satisfaction holier-than-thou). You expect to be politely calm, put your head between your knees and crouch down from the door. Turn the table people — stop fighting with the rules of the Marquis of Queensberry and go MMA/Krav Maga to the back. But I`m going astray. In the recent “contract” with the Windham School Board, richer`s older, more experienced and more experienced teachers decided to spare their younger, less experienced and poorer teachers by taking the money from the newest and most inflated teacher contract.
