We have officially begun the contract negotiation process with officials from the Prince George’s County Public School System. We extend our thanks to those of you who submitted your ideas and requests. We discussed them with our attorney and they have all been implemented into what we feel is a very comprehensive, direct and fair proposal.
Once the process has concluded we will immediately have a special membership meeting to discuss this with you and to ultimately ratify our new contract.
We will keep you posted in regards to the progress of this process.
