Between April 12 and June 15, 2018, representatives from the Galesburg-Augusta Board of Education and the Galesburg-Augusta Education Association met four times to negotiate a successor collective bargaining agreement (contract) to replace the contract which expired on June 30, 2018. We currently have two dates for bargaining scheduled the week of August 13, 2018. The negotiation teams have discussed contractual matters related to compensation, class size, extra-duty/coaching compensation, health care, leave options, teacher performance pay, professional development, retirement funding options, salary increases, and reimbursement of mileage and tuition. The Board has and will continue to bargain in good faith to achieve a fair and increasingly competitive contract that hires and retains quality teachers for our students.
