WEA's negotiation team, Weber district's team and our mediator, Lynn Trenbeath, met yesterday (Monday) at 9:00 a.m. for over two hours and discussed more options for coming to an agreement. The new "Jobs Bill" money or "stimulus money" coming from the federal government (estimated at possibly $5.6 million for Weber) was a major topic of discussion. We are just getting more information on how it can be used and when the money will be arriving. We will meet again next Tuesday, Aug. 24 at the district office.
The Deseret News weighed in on the stimulus money in an editorial you can read at www.deseretnews.com
