School board to meet with union

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma


Before the new school year resumes, officials from the Los Alamos Public School District, the Los Alamos Federation of School Employees and the Los Alamos Board of Education will be meeting to clear up some communication issues in the most recent Memorandum of understanding between the school district and the labor union.

During a meeting in May, school board member Dr. Kevin Honnell brought those issues to light during a session concerning proposed language changes in the MOU. In that meeting, Honnell urged his fellow board members to table the series of MOU proposals for a later date, until they can arrive at some fundamental understanding as far as communication protocol is concerned.

“I’d like to urge my fellow colleagues to either consider tabling or postponing this action because I think it’s bad for our schools and was arrived at through a bad process,” said Honnell. “...First, this is coming to the board out of left field. To the best of my knowledge, none of us was even aware that this (proposed language changes to MOU) was going on, though at least, reportedly this is a negotiation on behalf of the board and the federation.”
