D-424 teachers' union expresses concerns about contract talks
GENOA – There was standing-room only at Tuesday’s Genoa-Kingston District 424 board meeting as the teachers’ union heard an update on contract negotiations.
Last month, school administrators announced that contract negotiations between the district and the Genoa-Kingston Education Association had reached an impasse after a year of talks. A federal mediator stepped in to help the two parties reach an agreement for a new contract.
During the public comment period, Matt Pierce, president of the Genoa-Kingston Education Association, expressed disappointment with how slowly negotiations had been going. He said the union has a “severe lack of confidence” in the district’s bargaining leadership, and also said he felt there should be more opportunities to address concerns with the board.
