The Marlboro Township Board of Education (The Board) hereby recognizes the Marlboro Township Operational Administrators' Association (M.T.O.A.A. or the Association) as the exclusive representative for collective negotiations concerning the terms and conditions of employment for all operational administrative personnel employed by the Board, excluding the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Board Secretary/Business Administrator, Senior Accountant; and including Supervisor of Buildings and Grounds, Transportation Coordinator, and Assistant Transportation Coordinator.
A. The Board and the Association shall engage in good faith bargaining in accordance with the schedule established by law.
B. In preparation for and during negotiations, the Board shall provide the Association the same budget information it gives to the County Superintendent of Schools at the same time and also in the same format.
1. A "grievance" is a complaint by which an employee or employees in the bargaining unit may appeal the interpretation, application or violation of this agreement, board policy, and administrative decisions affecting terms and conditions of employment except that the term "grievance" shall not apply to:
a. Any matter for which a method of review is prescribed by law or which by law is exclusively within the discretion of the Board.
b. Any rule or regulation of the State Department of Education or the State Commissioner of Education having the force and effect of law.
c. Any matter which according to law is beyond the scope of Board authority.
1. A grievance to be considered under this Procedure shall be presented by the grievant not later than fifteen (15) calendar days after the occurrence of the matter grieved or the time when he/she reasonably should have known of the occurrence.
The number of days allotted at each step of the grievance procedure is to be considered as a maximum time limit. Every attempt should be made to resolve grievances as quickly as possible. Failure of the grievant to proceed within the timelines set forth herein shall bar the grievance. Failure by the grievant to proceed from one step to another in a timely fashion shall be deemed to be an abandonment of the grievance.
2. Except at Step One (a) in which grievant may not be represented, a grievant may present and process his grievance personally or through an appropriate representative. In either event, the grievant shall be personally present at all steps of the grievance procedure. Should a grievant want to process his grievance personally or through an appropriate representative of his own choosing he may do so; however, the majority unit shall be so notified and shall have the right to have its own representative present.
3. No reprisals shall be taken by the Board or Administration against any participant because he utilizes the grievance procedure.
4. Should a grievance result from action taken by the Superintendent or the Board, a grievant may present his grievance initially at the third step of the grievance procedure.
a. A grievant may initially discuss the matter, identified as a grievance, with the Business Administrator in an attempt to settle the grievance informally. This is not intended to extend the time limitation as set forth in Section B, Subsection 1.
b. A grievant shall file his grievance in writing by presenting the written grievance to the Business Administrator. The grievance must contain: (1) a statement of the nature of the grievance; (2) the specific contractual provision(s) alleged to have been violated; and (3) the specific relief sought.
c. The grievant and his/her representative and the Business Administrator shall meet in an attempt to resolve the grievance not later than five (5) work days following the date on which it is filed.
d. The Business Administrator shall communicate his/her decision in writing to the grievant not later than five (5) work days following the meeting.
a. If the aggrieved person is not satisfied with the disposition of his grievance by the Business Administrator, or if the Business Administrator has not communicated his decision in writing to the grievant as provided, the grievant and his representative may proceed to Step Two, hearing at Superintendent's level. The request of the grievant shall contain the information specified in Section C.1b, above, as well as an explanation of the grievant's dissatisfaction with the previous determinations, clearly explain the grievance and be made in writing not later than five (5) work days following the decision of the Business Administrator, or if no decision has been rendered, then not later than five (5) work days following the expiration of the five (5) work day period provided for a response at Level One and shall be submitted to the Superintendent.
b. The grievant and his representative and the Superintendent shall meet in an attempt to resolve the grievance not later than five (5) work days following the date on which the grievance was filed at Step Two.
c. The written decision shall be communicated to the grievant not later than seven (7) work days after the meeting.
a. If the aggrieved person is not satisfied with the disposition of his grievance by the Superintendent, or if the Superintendent has not communicated his decision in writing to the grievant as provided, the grievant and his representative may proceed to Step Three hearing at Board level. This hearing may be with the Board or the Board's representative(s). The request of the grievant shall contain the information specified in Section C.1b, above, as well as an explanation of the grievant's dissatisfaction with the previous determinations, clearly explain the grievance and be made in writing not later than five (5) work days following the decision of the Superintendent, or if no decision has been rendered, then not later than five (5) work days following the expiration of the seven (7) work day period provided for a response at Level Two and shall be submitted to the Board Secretary.
b. The grievant and his representative(s) and the Board and/or its representative shall meet in an attempt to resolve the grievance not later than twenty (20) work days following the date on which the grievance was filed.
c. The Board shall communicate its decision in writing to the grievant not later than twenty (20) work days following the meeting. A copy of the decision shall also be forwarded at the same time to the Superintendent and the Marlboro Township Operational Administrators' Association.
a. In the event the grievant is dissatisfied with the determination of the Board of Education aforesaid, or if no decision by the Board is in the time frame specified in paragraph 3.c, and in the further event that the grievance involves the interpretation or application of this contract, the matter may be submitted to arbitration. A request for arbitration shall be made in writing no later than fifteen (15) work days following the determination of the Board. Failure to request arbitration within said period of time shall constitute an absolute bar to such arbitration unless the Board of Education and the Marlboro Township Operational Administrators' Association shall mutually agree upon a longer time period within which to assert such a demand.
b. The Board may also request arbitration concerning any dispute regarding the interpretation or application of this contract. The time limits applicable to the Association are also applicable to the Board of Education.
c. The arbitrator shall have no power or authority to add to, subtract from, change or modify any of the terms of this agreement. The arbitrator shall be without authority to determine matters for which there is an alternate statutory appeal process required by law or agreed to by the parties.
d. Within ten (10) work days after the M.T.O.A.A. shall have delivered the written request for arbitration, the Board and the M.T.O.A.A. shall attempt to agree upon a mutually acceptable arbitrator and shall obtain a commitment from said arbitrator to serve. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator or to obtain such a commitment within the specified time period, the Public Employment Relations Commission shall be requested to supply a list of arbitrators. The parties shall then be bound by the rules and procedures of the Public Employment Relations Commission in the selection of an arbitrator.
e. The arbitrator so selected shall confer with the representatives of the Board and the M.T.O.A.A. and hold hearings promptly, and he shall issue his decision not later than twenty (20) days from the close of hearings, or if oral hearings have been waived, then from the date that the final statements and proofs are submitted to him. The arbitrators' decision shall be submitted to the Board and the Association and shall be advisory.
f. The costs for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses, if any, and the cost of the hearing room, if any, shall be borne equally. Any other expenses incurred shall be paid by the party incurring such expense.
1. Forms for filing grievances, serving notices, taking appeals, making reports and recommendations and other necessary documents shall be prepared jointly by the Superintendent and the Association and given appropriate distribution so as to facilitate operation of the grievance procedure.
2. All meetings and hearings under this procedure shall not be conducted in public and shall include only such parties in interest and their designated or selected representative(s), heretofore referred to in this Article.
3. All documents, communications and records dealing with the processing of a grievance shall be filed in a separate grievance file and shall not be kept in the personnel file of any of the participants.
