OEA Negotiations meeting cancelled by district

Thursday night the OEA Negotiations team found out that the scheduled negotiations meeting with Ogden District Friday morning was cancelled. The school board, meeting in executive session Thursday night, did not have any new information for us, according to Ogden District spokesperson Brenda Ruffier. We were disappointed and will now wait to see when we can meet again.

Jordan School District and JEA is still stalled in their teacher negotiations. JEA and the Jordan District met with a Federal Mediator last week for two days and were not able to come to an agreement. Jordan Education Association is asking for contractual steps and lanes and the district only offered to give them steps and lanes next year (2011-12) only if the JEA would accept other cuts to pay for them. The will now proceed to a fact-finding hearing officer appointed by state supt. Larry Shumway.

Weber Education Association will continue the mediation process meeting Wednesday, August 11 with the district team and the mediator, Lynn Trenbeath (retired Davis administrator).
