GENEVA – The Geneva Education Association and school board negotiation teams have been meeting in smaller groups recently as suggested by the mediator with different makeups and for different purposes, school officials announced in a Nov. 16 news release.

Since the session on Nov. 14, the teachers union negotiating team and the district’s groups have had four meetings and have three additional meetings scheduled for Thanksgiving week.

All of these sessions have been focused on resolving the teachers compensation model issue and both teams agreed not to make public any progress or outcomes from these meetings until a model has been agreed to.

In addition to the three meetings scheduled for next week, the full teams have meetings scheduled for Nov. 26 and Nov. 28.

The GEA represents 459 teachers, who voted to authorize a strike in September.

The GEA and the district have been in negotiations since February and teachers have been working without a contract since Aug. 15.
