GUSTINE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
October 29, 2018 Teacher Negotiations Update
The District and GRTA held their first mediation meeting with the assistance of a State Mediator on October 29, 2018. The State Mediator met with both negotiation teams separately and acted as a go-between to assist them in reaching a final agreement. Unfortunately, the parties were not able to reach agreement. However, the parties have agreed to hold a second mediation meeting with the assistance of the State Mediator on November 29, 2018.
Superintendent Bryan Ballenger stated: “Although we were unable to reach an agreement today with the assistance of the State Mediator, I am optimistic that we will reach an equitable agreement when we continue mediation on November 29.”
