Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel Contract Update

The Prairie Grove CSD 46 Board of Education (Board) and Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel (PGESP) continue to meet and negotiate in good faith for a fair and competitive contract. Both parties met last evening for nearly 5 hours. While no resolution was reached, there was good discussion and several open areas were better defined. The next negotiation/mediation session is scheduled for November 1, 2017 at 4pm.

The Board maintains its desire to reach an agreement on all outstanding issues. However, to maintain wide-ranging educational programs, staff stability and student achievement the Board believes that it must safeguard District 46’s financial position for future years. We will keep everyone updated if there are new developments via our website www.dist46.org, Panther Press, Facebook www.facebook.com/PrairieGrove46/, Twitter www.twitter.com/PrairieGrove46 and our Alert Now phone system.

Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel Contract Update

The Prairie Grove CSD 46 Board of Education (Board) strongly believes in and respects the Prairie Grove Education Support Personnel (PGESP). The Board has been negotiating in good faith for a fair and competitive contract that reflects several core beliefs regarding fiscal responsibility and compensation increases for education support staff in the District.

The Board and PGESP have been meeting regularly since March 15, 2016. Both parties jointly entered the Federal mediation process this summer and have met four times. The next mediation session is scheduled for October 17th at 4:00pm.

On April 24, 2017, the Board offered to make a joint statement with PGESP negotiating team outlining the Board’s compensation proposal to membership. PGESP negotiating team declined the offer. In order to be transparent and to communicate the contents of its current compensation offer with the PGESP membership and community the Board initiated the Public Posting Process on September 29th. The Board’s most recent economic offer, dated September 13th, is a six-year contract that adds over $960,000 in new dollars for wages and benefits over the term of the contract.

We encourage all PGESP members and community members to review the posted offers made by the Board and PGESP. The posted offers are found on the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board website at https://www.illinois.gov/elrb/Pages/FinalOffers.aspx.

The Board maintains its desire to reach an agreement on all outstanding issues. However, to maintain wide-ranging educational programs, staff stability and student achievement the Board believes that it must safeguard District 46’s financial position for future years. We will keep everyone updated if there are new developments via our website www.dist46.org, Panther Press, Facebook https://www.facebook.com/PrairieGrove46/, Twitter www.twitter.com/PrairieGrove46 and our Alert Now phone system.
