Your negotiation team started the Fact Finding process a few weeks ago on February 18th. The first part of this process is a second mediation. The mediator meets with both sides in an attempt to reach an agreement before any formal hearing begins. Since this meeting, your negotiation team has met with members of NJEA and its research experts to discuss our issues and the best way to proceed in this process.
It is always the hope of your negotiation team to reach an agreement that is best for all of our members. Our next meeting with the Fact Finder is on March 23rd.
If you have questions about the process please contact a member of your negotiation team.
Your support is appreciated,
Tim Trigani, Dee Pollak, Jeff Pringle, Shannon Filiano, Don Olsen, Trish Varicchio, Marianne Quigley
