  The negotiation session was not productive. They again offered 2%.   They also said that they may be able to increase that amount if we disbanded the 30 Hour PD (which according to their own figures costs $484,000 dollars a year-that's less than 2 years of the Superintendent's salary). Inflation hit a 31 year high of 6.1% in October and workers are leaving their jobs in record numbers to find better paying employment but those facts don't seem to resonate with their negotiating team.  


We are meeting again December 8, 2021
