Following three months of interest-based bargaining, the Northshore School District (NSD) and the Northshore Education Association (NSEA) have reached a tentative agreement on a three-year contract beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
This is the first time the NSD and NSEA have experienced the interest-based bargaining process. Both say they are very pleased to report that this approach worked very well for them and their ability to reach agreement, according to a press release.
The release states that details of the agreement will be made public following the NSEA general membership meeting on August 29. All members are encouraged to attend and learn the details of this important agreement.
NSD Superintendent Michelle Reid and NSEA President Tim Brittell thanked all of the bargaining team members who were assisted by veteran interest-based bargainers and facilitators, Kevin Teeley and Janene Fogard. Leadership involved in the process say they look forward to a great school year.
