    2. The terms teachers and professional staff shall be understood to include all certified unit members.

    II. NEGOTIATING PROCEDURE
      A. Attaining Objectives
        1. Attainment of the objectives of the educational program of the school system requires mutual understanding and cooperation between the Board and the Association. The Board and the Association agree to enter into collective negotiations in accordance with N.J.S.A. 34:13A-1 et seq. (and as above Article 1) in a good faith effort to reach agreement on matters concerning the terms and conditions of employment.


        2. Negotiations begin not later than the date prescribed by the Public Employment Relations Commission.

        B. During negotiations, the Board and the Association shall present relevant data, exchange points of view, and/or make proposals and counterproposals.

            D. This agreement shall not be modified in whole or part except in writing duly executed by both parties.

            III. GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE
              A. Definitions

              1. A grievance is a formal complaint by an employee(s) that a dispute exists concerning the interpretation, application, or violation of Board policies, the Agreement, and/or administrative decisions affecting said employee(s) and/or terms and conditions of employment.

              2. An “aggrieved person” is the person or persons making the claim.

              3. A “party in interest” is the person or persons making the claim and any person who might be required to take action, or against whom action might be taken in order to resolve the claim.

              B. Purpose

                  The purpose of this procedure is to secure at the lowest possible administrative level, solutions to the problems which from time to time may arise affecting the employee(s). Both parties agree that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of the procedure.
                C. Procedure

                1. Since it is important that grievances be processed as rapidly as possible, the number of days indicated at each level should be considered a maximum and every effort should be made to expedite the process. The time limits specified in this procedure may be extended by mutual consent.


                2. A grievance to be considered under this procedure must be initiated by the aggrieved within thirty (30) working days of its occurrence and must be signed by every aggrieved person except in the case of a grievance affecting a group or class of unit members, in which case an Association representative shall sign.

                3. Should a grievance be filed at such time that it cannot be processed through all the steps in this grievance procedure by the end of the school year, and may be left unresolved until the beginning of the following school year, the time limits set forth herein shall be reduced by mutual agreement in order that the grievance procedure may be exhausted prior to the end of the school year or as soon as possible thereafter as practicable.
                  4. All official grievance forms, in duplicate, involving a grievance will be channeled through the Association.

                  D. Level One
                      The Employee(s) with a grievance shall first discuss it with the appropriate building-level administrator or immediate supervisor in an attempt to resolve the matter informally.
                    E. Level Two
                        If the aggrieved is not satisfied with the discussion at Level One, then the aggrieved shall take a written statement of the grievance to the appropriate building level administrator or immediate supervisor within five (5) working days stating:
                    1. Nature of grievance
                    2. Nature and extent of injury or inconvenience
                    3. Results of previous discussions;
                    4. His/her dissatisfaction with decisions previously rendered;
                    5. Articles violated;
                    6. Relief sought.
                        Within five (5) working days after the receipt of the grievance, a written decision by the appropriate building level administrator or immediate supervisor shall be rendered to the aggrieved through the Association.

                    F. Level Three
                        If the aggrieved person is not satisfied with the disposition of his/her grievance at Level Two, then the aggrieved through the Association shall submit the grievance in writing to the Superintendent within five (5) working days. Within seven (7) working days after the receipt of the grievance, a written decision by the Superintendent shall be rendered to the aggrieved through the Association.
                      G. Level Four

                          If the grievance is not resolved to the employee(s) satisfaction at Level Three, he/she may within five (5) working days, through the Association, request a review by the Board, through the Superintendent of Schools, who shall attach all related papers and forward the request to the Board within five (5) working days of the receipt of the request. The Board, or a committee thereof, shall review the grievance and shall hold a hearing with the employee(s) and his/her/their chosen representative(s) and render a decision in writing within ten (10) working days of receipt of the grievance by the Board from the Superintendent.
                        H. Level Five
                          1. If the decision rendered by the Board is not satisfactory to the aggrieved, the Association may submit the grievance to arbitration within five (5) working days after receipt of the decision from Level Four.
                              At the request of either party a committee of four (4), two (2) appointed by each, shall be formed to investigate the possibility of resolving the grievance prior to the arbitration hearing. If the parties accept the proposed settlement, the Association shall withdraw the matter from arbitration.
                            2. The parties shall be bound by the rules and procedures by the Public Employee Relations Commission in the selection of an arbitrator. The arbitrator shall hold hearings relevant to the grievance. The decision of the arbitrator shall be submitted to the Board and to the Association and shall be final and binding on the parties.
                              3. The costs for the services of the arbitrator shall be borne equally by the Board and the Association. Any other expense incurred shall be paid by the parties incurring same.

In recommending sabbatical leaves of absence, the Superintendent shall give consideration to the greatest benefit to the school system.

The salary granted to a teacher for sabbatical leave shall be one-half (1/2) of the salary to which the applicant should be entitled if not on leave. Regular deductions shall be made for United States Income Tax, Social Security, New Jersey Teacher’s Pension Fund, and other deductions as authorized by the teacher. Salary payments shall be made in accordance with the schedule for payment of salaries of the school system.

                                                                                                                                                                                As a condition to such leave, the teacher shall enter into a contract to continue in the service of the Town of Boonton schools for period of at least two (2) years after the expiration of the leave. Teachers, upon their return, shall be paid the same scheduled salary that they would have received had they not had a sabbatical leave. If circumstances prevent fulfillment of the two years following the leave, the teacher shall reimburse the Board in direct proportion of the unfilled time except in case of death or permanent disability. Teachers on such leave may take part-time positions to supplement their income but may not take full-time positions unless the Board approves such positions as beneficial to the school system.

                                                                                                                                                                            D. Association Leave

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Prior to November 1 each year, the Association will submit to the Board a list of those employees who have neither become members of the Association for the then current membership year or not paid directly to the Association the full amount of the representation fee for that membership year. The Board will deduct from the salaries of such employees, in accordance with Paragraph 2 below, the full amount of the representation fee and promptly will transmit the amount so deducted to the Association.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                2. Payroll Deduction Schedule
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    The Board will deduct the representation fee in equal installments, as nearly as possible, from the paychecks paid to each employee on the aforesaid list during the remainder of the membership year in question, according to the procedures established for dues deduction for members.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                3. Termination
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    If an employee who is required to pay a representation fee terminates his/her employment with the Board before the Association has received the full amount of the representation fee to which it is entitled under this Article, the Board will deduct the unpaid portion of the fee from the last paycheck to said employee during the membership year in question. The procedure, as described in B.3. above, shall apply only if it is equally applied under the same circumstances to members of the Association for the purposes of dues collection.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                4. Mechanics of Deduction and Transmission of Fees

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            3. The term of occupancy of the designated office space is to be consistent with the duration of this agreement. This agreement is renewable upon ten (10) days written request by the BEA to the Board and official Board approval thereafter. Should the Board decide not to renew this agreement at any future date, the BEA shall be entitled to ten days written notice from the Board of such non-renewal. If the BEA submits a timely request for renewal of this agreement and the Board fails to act within ten days of the anniversary of this agreement, the agreement will be deemed automatically renewed for an additional year.


                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            4. The BEA will be exclusively responsible for the maintenance and care of the designated office space.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              5. The expressed understanding of the parties to this agreement is that the space designated for the BEA is to be used exclusively as a business office and is not intended for nor is it permitted to be used for planning, administering or participating in work stoppages or job actions such as strikes.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                6. The BEA shall provide for and maintain a separate access area to the designated office which is separate and apart from the rooms and facilities of the special services department. The BEA shall have no access to the child study team area, rooms, records or facilities, without the express written consent of the Board or its designee.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  7.
