School Board Presents Their Initial Bargaining Proposal To Teacher Union

Sheldon, Iowa — In a very short meeting Wednesday morning, the Sheldon School Board met in special session to present their Initial Collective Bargaining Proposal to the Sheldon Education Association, the union that represents the school district’s teachers.

Sheldon Superintendent Cory Myer tells us about the school district’s proposal.

Last week, the union presented their Initial Collective Bargaining Proposal to the Sheldon School Board. That proposal called for a 3.58% increase, which is very close to the district’s proposal.

Myer says negotiating sessions between the school and the union will be conducted in closed session from here on out.

He says fortunately the negotiating process is normally not a contentious one.

Myer says the district and the teachers have the same bottom line goal in everything they do, and that is what’s best for the district’s students.
