Collaborative Bargaining Joint Communication—Jan. 26, 2017
The Steering Committee for Collaborative Bargaining made up of representatives from CTA, CU and the District met this morning at the SLC District Office. The committee utilized
the retooled process developed at the training last fall with the Federal Mediator to do its work.
After breaking up into work groups regarding two agenda topics: summer school staffing and CU training rate, consensus was reached by each work group. Both solutions were presented to the full Steering Committee and language will be written to formalize these agreements.
CTA/CU Chief Negotiator, David Freeland said, “We went into this with high expectations and were pleased with the outcome.”Helen Wild, chief negotiator for the district added “The process was very collaborative, concise and productive.”
The Steering Committee meets again in March and in the meantime, subcommittee work will continue.
