Collective Bargaining Negotiating Sessions Update

As shared in late August, members of the Hempfield Board of School Directors and the Hempfield Education Association (HEA), which represents the teachers and other certificated employees of the district, have been meeting regularly since January 2019 in order to enter into a successful collective bargaining agreement. The parties engaged in another bargaining session last week, and two additional sessions are scheduled before the end of this month. It is our hope to make progress on areas that remain unsettled. The board is committed to negotiating an agreement with the HEA that is competitive for our valued teaching staff but also fiscally responsible and sustainable for all community stakeholders.

Thank you –

The Hempfield Board of School Directors
