NEW BRUNSWICK EDUCATION ASSOCIATION

November 2014

Nancy Coppola, NBEA President
LeShaun Arrington, Negotiations Co-Chair – Roosevelt
Randall Miller, Negotiations Co-Chair-A.C Redshaw
Negotiations Team: Deborah Eddy, NBEA 1st VP, Carolyn Newsom, paraprofessional; Wendie Arriaga, Social Worker; Magalis Azcona-Ortiz, Specialist; Daphna Langballe, Math Specialist; Jacqueline Jagemann, Secretary

The team met with the Board Monday, November 3. The meeting was scheduled to start at 1:30. The Board came to the meeting at approximately 2:30. We discussed language items and salary guides. Progress was made on several items, and more discussion is needed on others. The meeting concluded at 9:00.

The next meeting is scheduled for November 25.

In the meantime, we would like all members to familiarize themselves with Achieve New Jersey and Teach New Jersey. These new laws are in effect and impact most staff, especially when it comes to observations. Although most of the language in our expired contract is being followed, Teach New 
Jersey supersedes our current language and dictates many procedures that are currently taking place. 

For more information about the new evaluation system, you can go to www.newbrunswickea.com and click on the links for Teach New Jersey.

We understand that everyone would like to have a new agreement in place, but please understand that we are working to reach an agreement that is in the best interest of all our members. We do not want to settle our contract just to get it done. 

We would like to thank everyone for your understanding, patience, and support as we work toward a settlement.
