November 15, 2017

2016-2017-Grievance 1A- Unit A- CTE member’s class size exceed those allowed by the contract.  Denied at Level 2; resolved due to a teacher being hired to reduce class size.

Note: Because this can potentially become a recurring safety issue, the School Committee has been notified of this incident- in writing- regarding the potential problems of not following class size mandates.

Level 2-Grievance 1D- New policies and procedures issued by Mr. Joyal have changed the working conditions of the Unit D members and violate their contract language – forcing them to work flex time. Denied at Level 2; moving to Level 3.
