Negotiations Stall Between Supervisors, Board of Ed
Association declares impasse, expected to file for mediation.
About one month after the principals association declared impasse in its contract discussions with the board of education, the Bridgewater-Raritan Supervisors Association has done the same.
Board of education Patrick Breslin said Tuesday the association has declared impasse with the board.
The most recent meeting, Breslin said was held Jan. 17.
“The board’s negotiations committee met with representatives of the Bridgewater-Raritan Supervisors Association,” he said in a statement. “The parties did not reach an agreement on salary or longevity issues.”
After a two-hour meeting, Breslin said, the association advised the board that it would be declaring impasse and filing for mediation.
“We are eager to see a fair and equitable resolution,” he said. “We will keep the public apprised of meetings as they are scheduled.”
In December, the Bridgewater-Raritan Principals Association declared impasse and decided it would be filing documents with the state’s Department of Labor after talks were stalled with the board of education.
