 ROBBINSVILLE EDUCATION ASSOCIATION REJECTS ROBBINSVILLE BOARD OF EDUCATION’S CONTRACT PROPOSAL AND FILES FOR IMPASSE

On June 28, 2017 the Robbinsville Education Association unilaterally filed a Notice of Impasse with the Public Employment Relations Commission regarding the current negotiations with the Robbinsville Board of Education.  The two parties have been in negotiations since January 30, 2017.  At the last negotiations session on June 22, 2017, the Robbinsville Board of Education presented a settlement proposal that supports the bargaining unit members and is fair to the Robbinsville taxpayers.  The Robbinsville Education Association’s Negotiations Team rejected the Board’s offer and did not present a counter-proposal.  The Robbinsville Education Association’s declaration of impasse shifts the negotiation phase to mediation, and if necessary, fact-finding.  The Robbinsville Board of Education remains committed to negotiate in good faith and agree to a contract that supports our staff, serves our students well, and is fair to the Robbinsville taxpayers.
