The new JEA Negotiations Team met on Monday. We had a basic overview of the negotiations process and practice. We talked about items to take to the Joint Committee that came out of last year's negotiations. The Team members are: Melissa Brown, chairperson; Janeen McMillan, Karl McKenzie, and Kara Goodwin. The process has begun.
Please remember that in order to receive steps and lanes for the current school year, the negotiations team agreed that there had to be new money from the legislature for steps and lanes for next school year. That should be motivation for all of you to contact your legislators and tell them to support the governor's budget to increase funding to public education.
