Last night, the Board negotiating team gave an offer to our secretarial and support staff that their negotiating team and union representative talked over at length. Early this morning (just after midnight, as a matter of fact), a Tentative Agreement was signed by both parties.
The Board will hold an official vote on the TA as soon as legally possible (we need to provide 48 hrs. notice to the public of any special meetings so as to be in compliance with Ohio Sunshine Law). I am told that the SSSA members will vote on the proposed contract next week.
I believe it is safe to say that this matter is settled to the mutual satisfaction of both sides.
