Support Peters Township teachers
This petition is both for residents of Peters Township and parents of children that attend Peters Township schools. Take a minute to share your support of the Peters Township teachers. By signing this you realize the importance of education and the value of the Peters Township teachers. The Peters Township teachers deserve a fair and equitable contract for all that they do for our community and children both inside and outside of the classroom.
There are members of our community that seem to have a misguided idea that the teachers are out for just money and healthcare. A few of the major outstanding issues include class size, traveling teachers, healthcare, and economic items. The teachers are actually receiving no pay for these days to better the education of the students in Peters Township. The teachers care about class size and being able to individually meet for diverse needs of each of our students.
Negotiation Update: Final Best Offers Posted
The next step in the contract negotiation process between the District and the Peters Township Federation of Teachers is non-binding final best offer arbitration. This process involves a representative from each side, as well as a third neutral party who review the proposals and evidence provided during arbitration hearings. Proposals have been submitted by both sides and are available for review online and at the District Administration Offices during business hours.
Community members are encouraged to read both offers carefully and provide comment aimed at a resolution. Comments must include the resident’s name and address and may be submitted via the online submission form on the website or in paper form at the Administration Building, either by hand delivery or through the U.S. mail, addressed to Arbitrator Timothy Tietze, 631 East McMurray Road, McMurray, PA 15317.
The Public Comment period begins on Monday, February 22 and ends on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
