The Faculty Association and the Laboratory Schools administration have officially started negotiating the collective bargaining agreement, a process that happens every four years. The existing agreement expires June 30.

The FA sent a survey to faculty in early November about negotiating wages, benefits, hours and other terms and conditions of employment. The FA is negotiating changes to the contract based on the results from the survey. 

The FA and administration declined to go into detail on the negotiating process.

Laboratory Schools Director Victoria Jueds wrote in an email to the Midway, “The Faculty Association and administration are just now commencing our contract negotiations process, and we all feel very optimistic.”
