Rep-Am article can be found here: Cheshire teachers agree concessions
"The Board of Education is expected to approve a concessions package tonight that guarantees no teacher layoffs for two years and splits the pay and step increase for teachers over that period."
I was part of the negotiation team and have insight into this agreement. I cannot comment any further since this is pending executive session this evening and I'm not sure what I can talk about since I signed a mound of NDA paper work.
I hope to post more after tonight's meeting.
