The Roxbury Board of Education is pleased to announce that the Board’s and the Roxbury Education Association’s (REA) negotiations teams have reached common ground for contract settlement and have signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) that contains the terms and details of the agreement for the 2017-2020 contract.
The agreed upon provisions include annual raises, additional funding for improvement of the salary guides and stipends to provide some relief from the Chapter 78 insurance premium payments by employees. The details of these and other provisions are being incorporated into a new collective bargaining agreement and new salary guides are being developed, subject to approval by both the REA and the Board. The new contract and proposed salary guides are in the process of review by each party’s representatives.
This agreement is the culmination of many hours of negotiations and personal effort by the members of each team and was facilitated by the efforts of Mr. James Mastriani, the appointed Fact Finder and mediator.
