The District negotiation team met with the PVFA bargaining team on Tuesday, January 30, 2018 to begin negotiations on a work year calendar for 2018-19. The teams began the day discussing the calendar process followed by PVFA presenting results from a calendar survey they gave to their membership. Following a review of the survey data, we collaboratively discussed some potential calendar options. We spent a bit of time discussing the ramifications of any changes we make to the calendar along with considering next steps in the process for both teams. Both bargaining teams will take calendar options back to their respective leadership teams to have further discussions. We look forward to meeting again soon with the hope of finalizing a calendar to bring before the Board for approval.
