President’s Remarks

This is a safe space for open discussion.

If Laura doesn’t respond, reach out to another officer, your CAT member, or building/unit rep.


Our unified bargaining has gotten attention from local governance and other unions for how well we did. This is because of our strong collective voice.


The CEA has developed a good working relationship with administration, with regular meetings, some success from PAC, etc.


New Business

Discussion of Student Accountability – Poll


Negotiations Update – Unit A, D, and E will be signed this week. It will be available on the CEA website after signing.

Unit B had their first mediation meeting. It didn’t go well, but there will be another meeting.


Duties and Current Grievance –  Coverage is not a duty because there is accountability as a substitute. We are making headway. Past practice requires mutual agreement.


City Council Curriculum Committee – CEA has a place on this committee, currently occupied by Laura. This is unpaid and at night.


School Committee Curriculum Committee –  CEA has two places on this committee.  This is unpaid and at night.


Open Positions – Webmaster (current webmaster will be unavailable for coaching season) and New Member Liaison


MTA Annual Meeting – May 20 and 21 in Boston. We are allotted 22 delegates.


All In Grant – From $6/member to $10/member. Partially pays for combined retirement party and summer send off.


Next Meeting on April 6, 2022 (via Zoom starting at 4:00)
