“Right now, MSEA is setting up schedules to remove information and inform our members of what the agreement entails,” Shibe said. “This education work starts on Monday and takes place for a few days. Next week, we will present the ratification votes to the members. “We are pleased to inform you that we have reached a preliminary agreement with the union and the district on the MSEA collective agreement,” said Dr. Randy Trani, Superintendent of MSBSD. “What I am most pleased about is that we have found a solution, a compromise over a long period of negotiations. I am glad that we were able to find a solution. We can focus on the most important thing, it is the education of children. “We look forward to a compromise agreement,” said Dianne Shibe, MSEA President. “We are in the process of signing an interim agreement, and we will submit this agreement to all our members to see if they will ratify it, I think they will be happy to see it.” “It`s a three-year contract, but it`s retroactive to last year because the association left last year without a contract,” dr. Trani said. “This is his last year, this year and the following year.” MSEA members have yet to ratify the treaty. The interim agreement provides for a three-year term, which provides for an annual increase of two per cent. ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) – On Thursday afternoon, leaders of the Borough Borough District of Matanuska and the Mat-Su Education Association held a joint press conference, during which the two sides announced a compromise on a new teacher contract.
The agreement comes days after MSEA members voted to authorize a strike. Shibe hopes the treaty will be ratified by the end of next week or early next week. After the contract is concluded, the contract is subject to approval by the school board. Insurance services were another sensitive point in the negotiations, and Shibe said that the information must wait until it is published, for all members to be informed and trained on the language of insurance.
