RECOGNITION OF THE MAJORITY REPRESENTATIVE UNIT –

Whereas a majority of the teachers, secretaries and transportation employees in the Glassboro Public Schools have designated the Glassboro Education Association (hereinafter “GEA”) as their exclusive representative unit, now;

Therefore, be it, resolved that, pursuant to Chapter 123, Public Law 1974, the Board of Education of the Glassboro Public Schools, Glassboro, New Jersey, (hereinafter referred to as the Board), recognizes the GEA as the representative of personnel designated as unit members who are compensated on the salary guides attached to this Agreement, including teachers, library/media specialists, guidance counselors, school nurses, social workers, speech correctionists/speech-language specialists, school psychologists, learning disability teacher consultants, instructional facilitators, reading specialists, secretaries, bus drivers, mechanics, transportation aides and all other non-supervisory instructional and transportation personnel for the purpose of collective negotiations concerning the terms and conditions of employment of the employees in such unit and excluding all other employed personnel such as all positions assigned to the office of the Board of Education.

ARTICLE II
PROCEDURES FOR MEETINGS

A. In recognition of Public Laws 123, enacted in 1974, which requires both the local Board of Education and the Education Association to negotiate in good faith, and in further recognition of specific dates for budget commitments set by State Statute, it is therefore agreed that the GEA will present its proposals to the Glassboro Board of Education on or before January 15th of the year of expiration of this contract. Negotiations will commence at this time. Final proposals by both parties will be submitted by March 1st. Both parties will make every effort to conclude negotiations by May 20th.

B. It is further agreed by the respective parties, during the period of negotiations, that the only publicity accorded the negotiations, by the parties will consist of discretionary releases to the Board and to the Association and a joint press release. In the event that the parties are unable to agree upon wording, the joint press release shall state that “no progress has been made.”

C. The GEA and the Board shall individually name their respective representatives for the purpose of collective negotiations concerning the terms and conditions of employment.

D. The chairpersons of the respective teams shall determine the final agenda and shall establish mutually acceptable meeting dates.

ARTICLE III

ASSOCIATION AND UNIT MEMBERS’ RIGHTS

A. Information
    The parties agree that any information regarding negotiations or grievance proceedings, necessary for the Association to represent unit members shall be made available to the Association after receipt of a written request from the Association to the Office of the Superintendent. The information will be provided as soon as possible, provided that it is available within the district.

B. Use of School Buildings
    The GEA, in accordance with Board Policy “Use of School Facilities,” shall be entitled to the use of the school buildings for the purpose of conducting meetings.

E. Unit members shall immediately report to their principal or immediate supervisor, in writing, cases of assault, as defined in N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1 et seq., suffered by them in connection with their employment. Such notification shall be immediately forwarded to the Superintendent who shall comply with any reasonable request from the unit member for information in the possession of the Superintendent relating to the incident or the person involved. Such cooperation by the Superintendent shall be consistent with that permitted by law.

F. The Board shall reimburse unit members for any loss, damage, or destruction of clothing or personal property of a unit member as a result of an assault, while on duty in school, on the school premises, or in a school sponsored activity, up to a maximum of one hundred dollars ($100). Such reimbursement shall cover only those items not covered by any insurance.

G. Unit members shall not be required to work under unsafe or hazardous conditions or to perform tasks which endanger their health or safety.

H. Pursuant to Chapter 123, Public Law of 1974, the Board hereby agrees that except as hereinafter provided, “Public employees shall have, and shall be protected in the exercise of, the right, freely and without fear of penalty or reprisals, to form, join, and assist any employee organization or to refrain from such activity.”

G. Except as hereinafter provided, the rights of unit members under New Jersey School laws or other applicable laws and regulations are neither denied nor restricted.
    H. Unit members shall be entitled to full rights of citizenship, and no religious or political activities of any unit members or the lack thereof shall be grounds for any discipline or discrimination with respect to the employment of such unit members, providing said activities do not violate any local, state, or federal law.

      ARTICLE V
      NO STRIKE CLAUSE

      Neither the Glassboro Education Association, nor any of its individual members, nor any of its agents, nor persons acting on its behalf, shall take action, individually or in concert, which will interrupt the operations of the school system.

      ARTICLE VI
      FORMAL GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

      A. Definitions

          3. A “grievant” is the person or persons making the claim.
            4. A unit member or a representative of unit members may appeal the interpretation, application or violation of this Agreement, provided that such grievance procedures shall be included in this Agreement entered into between the Board and the Association.
              5. 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, however, may be extended by mutual agreement. All days referred to in this Article shall be business days if initiated between July 1 and August 31 and school days if initiated between September 1 and June 30.
                6. The purpose of this procedure is to secure, at the lowest level, equitable solutions to the problems that may arise under the provisions of this Agreement.
                  B. Grievance Procedures

                  1. Level One:
                  a. An individual grievant and/or the GEA representative or chairperson of the Grievance Committee of the GEA shall first discuss the alleged grievance with the building principal/immediate supervisor of the unit member.
                    2. Level Two:
                    a. If, after consultation with the building principal/immediate supervisor, a satisfactory solution has not been reached within five (5) days, a written formal grievance, designating the grievance and all parties to the grievance may be filed with the building principal/immediate supervisor. The grievant shall state the remedy or solution sought in writing.
                      b. The grievant will submit the grievance on the form agreed upon by the negotiating teams. Forms may be secured from the Superintendent’s office. If such written formal grievance is not filed within eight (8) days after the initial discussion at Level One, the grievance shall be considered waived.
                        3. Level Three:
                        a. If the grievant is not satisfied with the disposition of his/her written grievance at Level Two, or if no decision has been remedied within ten (10) days after presentation of the written grievance, he/she may file the grievance in writing with the Superintendent of Schools.
                          b. The Superintendent of Schools shall render a written decision within ten (10) days.
                            4. Level Four:
                            a. If dissatisfied with the action taken in the previous levels, the grievant may, with full knowledge of the building principal and the Superintendent of Schools, within ten (10) days after receipt of the Superintendent’s decision, request an appointment for review by the Board of Education or its designated committee. The Superintendent shall prepare a review of the grievance for the Board or designated Board committee.
                              b. The Board or its designated committee may, in its discretion, formally meet with the grievant to review the grievance, and the Board shall render its decision within thirty-one (31) days or may, in its discretion, waive this procedure and refer the grievance to a mutually agreed upon arbitrator.
                                5.

                                  Level Five:
                                a. If the grievant is not satisfied with the disposition of his/her grievance by the Board, he/she may, within fifteen (15) days after notification of the decision by the Board, file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association for the selection of an arbitrator and a hearing in accordance with its rules and procedures. The grievant and the Board may utilize the services of a mutually agreed upon arbitrator.
                                  b. The arbitrator so selected will confer with the parties and hold hearings promptly and will issue his/her decision no later than twenty (20) days from the date of the close of the hearing. The arbitrator’s decision shall be in writing and will set forth his/her findings of fact, reasoning, and conclusions on the issues submitted. The arbitrator shall have no power to alter, modify, add to, or subtract from the provisions of this Agreement. His/her authority shall be limited to deciding whether a specific Article and section of this Agreement has been violated and shall be subject to, in all cases, the rights, responsibilities and authority of the parties under the New Jersey School laws or any other national, state, county, district or local laws. The arbitrator shall not usurp the functions of the Board of Education or the proper exercise of its judgment and discretion under law and this Agreement. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on both parties.
                                    c. The costs for the services of the arbitrator per diem expenses, if any, and actual and necessary travel, subsistence expenses and the cost of the hearing room, shall be borne equally by the Board and the individual if acting on his/her own behalf. Any other expenses incurred shall be paid for by the party incurring the same.
                                      6. All records dealing with processing of a grievance shall be retained in a separate file in the office of the Superintendent of Schools. They shall be held in strict confidence as a protection to the individual employee and in respect to the right of privacy.
                                        7. It shall be the general practice to process grievance procedures during time which does not interfere with assigned duties of the Association staff, provided, however, in the event it is agreed by the Board to hold proceedings during the school day, a grievant participating at any level of the procedure with any representative of the Board shall be released from assigned duties without any loss of salary.
                                          8. An individual employee or the GEA representative during the course of the processing of a grievance shall continue to follow administrative directives and Board policy.
                                            9. The following matters shall not be the basis of any grievance filed under the procedure outlined in this Article:
                                            a. The termination of services of or failure to re-employ any probationary unit member.
                                              b. Any claim or complaint for which there is another remedial procedure of form established by law or by regulation having the force of law, including any matter subject to the procedures specified in the N.J. Statutes Annotated, Title 18:A
                                                10. “Binding arbitration” as used in this Agreement shall be used only within the procedures set forth in this Article.

Equivalency credit recognizes that formal courses in subject matter and methodology serve as only one method for teachers to improve professionally. In granting equivalency credits, the beneficial educational value to the school system of the teacher’s activities will be of singular importance.

                                                                                          B. Equivalency credit applications will be reviewed in advance by the District Advisory Council. Forms will be provided for this purpose. Recommendations will be forwarded to the Superintendent. Final approval of the Board of Education is required. At the conclusion of such activity a second review will be made by the Council, the Superintendent and the Board to determine its value to the school system. The granting of equivalency credits will be determined on the basis of this evaluation.

                                                                                          C. Equivalency Credit Activities

Formalized In-service Programs include formal workshops and in-service courses that are sponsored either by the Glassboro Board of Education, other school systems or institutions and organizations that do not grant academic credit. The amount of credit approved for such programs will be dependent upon attendance requirements and outside preparation. In general, college standards are followed.
                                                                                            2. “Original Writing” shall be defined as ideas expressed first-hand by the writer as opposed to a compilation or interpretation of material written by others. An article of not less than one thousand words published in a current educational magazine or a published book on education may be eligible for equivalency credit. A maximum of three semester hours of credit may be earned in this area.
                                                                                              3. Research projects resulting in the compilation and/or publication of data of special significance to the school system are eligible.

As a condition of each sabbatical leave granted by the Board, the certified staff member to whom the sabbatical is granted shall thereby become obligated to remain in the Glassboro Public Schools for a continuous period of not less than two (2) years immediately following the conclusion of the sabbatical leave.

                                                                                                                                                In the event that the certified staff member fails to satisfy this condition by resignation or other voluntary departure, the teacher shall refund to the Board at the time of departure such portion of the salary paid during the sabbatical leave, as the unexpired portion of the two-year period shall bear to the entire two-year period.

                                                                                                                                                            C. The parties agree that the work year for certified unit members shall be one hundred and eighty-six (186) days. The N.J.E.A. convention of no more than two (2) days duration will be included in the one hundred and eighty-six (186) day work year. New personnel employed in the district will work one (1) additional day beyond the one hundred and eighty-six (186) day regular work year. New personnel will, therefore, work a one hundred and eighty-seven (187) day work year in their first year of employment.

                                                                                                                                                            D. On the day before a holiday and on Fridays teachers may leave their respective school buildings fifteen minutes following the students’ departure, provided that professional responsibilities have been completed and provided that the teacher’s presence is not otherwise needed, as determined by building administrators.

                                                                                                                                                                                              REPRESENTATION FEE

                                                                                                                                                                                              A. Purpose of Fee

                                                                                                                                                                                              If an employee does not become a member of the Association during any membership year which is covered in whole or part by this Agreement, said employees will be required to pay a representation fee to the Association for that membership year. The purpose of this fee will be to offset the employees per capita cost of services rendered by the Association as majority representative.

                                                                                                                                                                                              For the purpose of this provision, employee means all members included in the bargaining unit who are receiving benefits.

                                                                                                                                                                                              Employees who are non-members employed by the Board after January 1 will pay 85% of one-half (1/2) the sum of regular dues, initiation fees and assessments for that membership year. Employees who are non-members who work twenty (20) hours or more will pay 85% of the entire sum of regular dues, initiation fees and assessments. Out-of-district co-curricular advisors who are not members of any bargaining unit will be assessed a fee of $50 per individual per contract year, regardless of the number of co-curricular contracts which are awarded to that individual.

                                                                                                                                                                                              B. Amount of Fees

                                                                                                                                                                                              Prior to the beginning of each membership year, the Association will notify the Board, in writing, of the amount of the regular membership dues, initiation fees and assessments charged by the Association to its own members for that membership year. The representation fee to be paid by non-members will be equal to 85% of that amount.

                                                                                                                                                                                              C. Deduction and Transmission of Fee

                                                                                                                                                                                              1. Notification
                                                                                                                                                                                                    The Association will submit to the Board a list of those employees in the bargaining unit who have not become members of the Association for the then current membership year. The Board will deduct the full amount of the representative fee (85%) from the salaries of such employees and promptly will transmit the amount so deducted to the Association.

                                                                                                                                                                                              2. Payroll Deductions
                                                                                                                                                                                                    The Board will deduct the representation fee in equal installments, as nearly as possible, from the paychecks of the employees on the aforesaid list during the remainder of the membership year in question. The deductions will begin with the first paycheck paid within 30 days after the employee begins his or her employment in a bargaining unit position, unless the employee previously served in a bargaining unit position and continued in the employ of the Board in a non-bargaining unit position or was on layoff, in which event the deductions will begin with the first paycheck paid 15 days after the resumption of the employees employment in a bargaining unit position, whichever is later.

                                                                                                                                                                                              D. Termination of Employment

                                                                                                                                                                                              If an employee who is required to pay a representation fee terminates his or her employment with the Board during the year, the Board will deduct the unpaid portion from the last paycheck paid to said employee during the membership year in question.

                                                                                                                                                                                              E. Method of Payment

                                                                                                                                                                                              The means for the deduction or representation fees and the transmission of such fees to the Association will, as nearly as possible, be the same as those used for the deduction and transmission of regular membership dues in the Association.

                                                                                                                                                                                              F. Changes

                                                                                                                                                                                              The Association will notify the Board in writing of any changes in the aforesaid list and/or the amount of the representation fee, and such changes will be reflected in any deductions made more than 30 days after the Board received said notice.

                                                                                                                                                                                              G.

The list will include names, job titles and dates of employment for all such employees.

                                                                                                                                                                                              H. Indemnification and Save harmless Provision
