Where Negotiations Paused for Summer
Hello WEA Members,
At our early June negotiation session, we reviewed the contracts for Shrewsbury, Algonquin, and Southborough (K-8). The meetings continue to be positive and productive.
We have one meeting remaining this school year, during which we will review the contracts for Lexington and Northborough (K-8). We hope to reach an agreement during the 2019-2020 academic year.
Please note that this will be the final update until next fall.
