This Agreement is made and entered into as of the 16th day of May, 2006 between the West New York Board of Education (hereinafter referred to as the “Board”) and the West New York Supervisors Association (hereinafter referred to as the “Association”).

C. All other individuals employed by the Board in positions not specifically enumerated above are excluded from the bargaining unit.
D. The rights and privileges of the Association and its members as set forth in this Agreement shall be granted only to the Association as the exclusive representative of the Supervisors as defined in the unit, and to no other organization.
ARTICLE II A. The parties agree to enter into collective negotiations over a successor Agreement in accordance with N.J.S.A. 34:13A-1 et seq., in a good faith effort to reach agreement on all matters concerning the terms and conditions of Supervisors' employment.
Any agreement so negotiated shall apply to all Supervisors, be reduced to writing, be signed by the Board and the Association, and be adopted by the Board and ratified by the Association.
A. During negotiations, the Board and the Association shall present relevant data; exchange points of view and make proposals and counter proposals. The Board shall make available to the Association for inspection all pertinent public records within a reasonable time. At the request of the Board, the Association shall make available to the Board for inspection all pertinent records necessary to facilitate negotiations within a responsible time.
C. Neither party in any negotiations shall have any control over or input into the selection of the negotiating representatives of the other party. The parties mutually pledge that their representatives shall be clothed with all necessary power and authority to make proposals, consider proposals, and make counter proposals in the course of negotiations. The parties recognize and affirm that representatives have no power or authority during the negotiations process to bind the parties to any proposal, counter-proposal or other matter, and that no agreement, in whole or part, shall be binding without a formal ratification vote by the parties according to law and this Agreement.
D. 1. Representatives of the Board and the Association's negotiating committee shall meet at the request of either party, when mutually convenient, for the purpose of reviewing the administration of the Agreement, and to resolve problems that may arise. These meetings are not intended to bypass the grievance procedure.
2. All meetings between the parties shall be scheduled, whenever possible, to take place when the Supervisors involved have completed their assigned duties, unless otherwise agreed.
3. Should the parties negotiate a mutually acceptable amendment to this Agreement, it shall be reduced to writing, be signed by the Board and the Association, and be adopted by the Board and the Association.
E. Except as this Agreement shall hereinafter or otherwise provide, all terms and conditions of employment applicable on the effective date of this Agreement to employees covered by the Agreement as established by the rules, regulations, and/or policies of the Board in force on said date, shall continue to be applicable during the term of this Agreement. Unless otherwise provided in the Agreement, nothing contained herein shall be interpreted and/or applied so as to eliminate, reduce or otherwise detract from any Supervisor's benefit existing prior to its effective date.
F. The Board agrees not to negotiate concerning the employees in the negotiating unit as defined in Article I of the Agreement with any organization other than the Association for the duration of this Agreement.
G. This Agreement incorporates the entire understanding of the parties on all matters that were or could have been the subject of negotiations. During the term of this Agreement neither party shall be required to negotiate with respect to any matter whether or not covered by this Agreement and whether or not within the knowledge or contemplation of either or both of the parties at the time they negotiated or executed this Agreement.
H. This Agreement shall not be modified in whole or in part by the parties except by an instrument in writing duly executed by both parties.

The Board, on its own and on behalf of the citizens of the Town of West New York, Hudson County, New Jersey, hereby retains and reserves onto itself, without limitation, all powers, rights, authority, duties and responsibilities conferred upon and vested in it by the laws and Constitutions of the State of New Jersey and of the United States.
BOARD RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
A. The exercise of the foregoing powers, rights, authority, duties, and responsibilities of the Board, the adoption of policies, rules, regulations, and practices in furtherance thereof, and the use of judgment and discretion in connection therewith shall be limited only by the specific and express terms thereof which are in conformance with the Constitution and laws of New Jersey and the United States and this Collective Bargaining Agreement.
C. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to deny or restrict the Board's rights, responsibilities, and authority under N.J.S.A. 18A: 1-1 et seq. (School Laws of the State of New Jersey) or any other federal, state, county, or local laws or regulations.
1. A grievance is a claim by a Supervisor or the Association based upon the interpretation, application, or violation of this Agreement, policies or administrative decisions affecting the terms and conditions of employment of a Supervisor.
1. In the wording of this statement of procedures, the term “Supervisor” shall be taken to include all personnel listed in the Recognition Clause.
2. “Days” are calendar days unless otherwise indicated.
3. “Superintendent” when used in these procedures shall mean the Superintendent of Schools or his designee.
The purpose of this procedure is to resolve disputes that arise involving the terms and conditions of employment of Supervisors covered by this Agreement. Both parties agree that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of the procedure.
The Association shall have the right to present all grievances on behalf of its unit employees through the steps described in the following paragraphs with assured freedom from restraint, interference, coercion, discrimination, or reprisal. Individual grievants shall be entitled to appear at any Step of these procedures.
Step One: Any Supervisor who has a grievance shall first informally advise his immediate superior of its existence within thirty (30) days after its occurrence. The superior shall meet with the Supervisor within fourteen (14) days in an attempt to resolve the grievance at this Step. Within fourteen (14) days of this meeting, the superior shall make known his decision orally to the Supervisor.
Step Two: If the Supervisor is not satisfied with the resolution to his grievance at Step One, and if his grievance meets the definition of a grievance (above), he shall have the Association formalize his problem in writing on the agreed upon grievance form and submit it to his immediate superior, with a copy to the Superintendent. The immediate superior shall respond on the form within seven (7) days of receipt.
Step Three: If the grievance is not resolved to the satisfaction of the Association at Step Two, it may be appealed within seven (7) days to the Director of Human Resources, setting forth specific details and the specific grounds on which the grievance is based and attaching all pertinent documents. The Director of Human Resources shall confer with the parties (together or separately) within seven (7) days of receipt. The Director of Human Resources shall render a decision within fourteen (14) days of such a meeting. A written statement of the decision and the supporting reasons therefor shall be sent to the aggrieved, his superior, and the Association.
Step Four: If the grievance is not resolved to the satisfaction of the Association at Step Three, it may be appealed within seven (7) days to the Superintendent, setting forth specific details and the specific grounds on which the grievance is based and attaching all pertinent documents. The Superintendent shall confer with the parties (together or separately) within seven (7) days of receipt. The Superintendent shall render a decision within fourteen (14) days of such a meeting. A written statement of the decision and the supporting reasons therefor shall be sent to the aggrieved, his superior, and the Association.
Step Five: If the Association is not satisfied with the resolution to its grievance at Step Four, it may be appealed within seven (7) days to the Board President. The Board President may hold an informal meeting between the parties. The Board President shall issue a decision within thirty (30) days, but no later than two (2) days from the next regular Board meeting.
Step Six: A grievance which remains unresolved after a decision rendered by the Board may be submitted to arbitration within ten (10) days following receipt of the decision by the Association.
a. The arbitrator shall be selected from a list of names provided to the parties by the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission. Arbitration shall be scheduled as quickly as possible, depending upon the availability of the arbitrator.
b. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the parties.
c. The arbitrator shall be limited to the issues submitted to him by the parties and shall be without power or authority to alter, amend or modify the terms of this Agreement. In addition, the arbitrator shall be without power or authority to make any decision that requires the commission of acts prohibited by law or which are violative of the terms of this Agreement. In formulating his decision, the arbitrator shall adhere to the statutory laws of the State of New Jersey and to pertinent decisions of the Commissioner of Education, State Board of Education, the Public Employment Relations Commission and the Courts.
d. The cost for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem fees and the actual and necessary travel and subsistence expenses shall be borne equally by the parties. Any other expenses incurred shall be paid by the party incurring same.
1. In the event no decision is forthcoming within the prescribed time limits at any step, the aggrieved may, upon notice, proceed to the next step.
2. Any of the time limits specified herein may be extended by mutual agreement. Should the Association and/or grievant fail at any step of this procedure to appeal a grievance to the next step of the grievance procedure within the specific time limits provided herein without requesting and receiving a written extension of same within those said time periods, the Association and grievant shall be deemed to have accepted the decision rendered at that step and to have permanently abandoned said grievance.
3. Grievances that arise as a result of decisions of the Superintendent or Board may be filed initially at Step Three, bypassing the immediate superior.
1. This grievance procedure shall in no way impair, diminish or preclude any rights of the parties set forth in N.J.S.A. 18A:1-1 et seq., or any other law. Any grievance based upon issues which are determined to be solely the prerogative of management shall terminate following exhaustion of the grievance procedure at the Board level.
5. It is understood that all Supervisors, including the grievant, shall during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance or other dispute, continue to observe all directives and assignments and applicable rules and regulations of the Board and its administration until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been fully resolved.
1. The Association agrees that all Board policies are not subject to binding arbitration, unless the policy is one that is subject to mandatory negotiability.
ARTICLE VII A notice of vacancy in an administrative position shall be posted in all schools and a copy shall be sent to the Association's President at the time of the posting and in no event later than twenty-one (21) calendar days before the final date when applications must be submitted.
