The AEA Bargaining Team met with the District this past Monday. The good news is that progress is still being made. Finances still seem to be the major sticking points, but we are hopeful that creative solutions can be found which address the needs of both the District and our Members. They are scheduled to meet again next Friday, October 27th.
