District Teachers Agree To End Job Action
Teachers at Mount Greylock Regional School District have agreed to end their job action. Under the work-to-rule job action, the teachers had refrained from participating in any extracurricular activities to protest what they described as the committee's unwillingness to give pay raises anticipated under their previous contracts.
The Berkshire Eagle reports that the committee is in negotiations with teachers about a new contract following the creation of a newly formed district. After a full day of contract negotiations Monday, the School Committee and union reps met separately to discuss the job action.
The committee made an offer, and after some consideration the union accepted it. The teachers voted to accept the offer yesterday morning.
We don't know what the committee offered that led the teachers to return to normal status. Negotiations for a final, unified contract are ongoing.
