At the Board of School Directors’ meeting tonight, the Board voted to approve the Mt. Lebanon Education Association Collective Bargaining Agreement. We would like to thank the entire negotiation team for all of their hard work during this process. Their early mornings and late nights did not go unnoticed.
We are pleased to have reached an agreement with MLEA which provides for wages, which keep Mt. Lebanon competitive, and will allow us to continue providing a premier and comprehensive educational experience for our students and families, in a financially responsible way that is fair to our taxpayers.
The Agreement contains wage increases, increased health care contribution by association members, and updating language in several areas including leaves, professional development, academic reimbursement standards for use of compensatory time, preparation time, flexible learning, and extra duty remuneration (EDR).
Following the ratification of this contract and the completion of a signed document, the contract will be posted here, on our website, under the Human Resources section for community review.
We are thankful for the outcome of the negotiation with Mt. Lebanon Education Association and are excited about the opportunity to continue the initiatives and strong partnership we have with one another. There is no doubt that our District is one of the premier Districts in Western Pennsylvania and the Commonwealth due to the people who are dedicated to the betterment of our students, and community.
This Agreement reflects the valued relationship we have with the MLEA and we look forward to continue Building on the Success of our Past, while Forging a New Future.
