The Warrior Run Education Association has been working to negotiate a new contract since January 2011. Our members have shown their good faith in the process by continuing to work under the terms and conditions of the expired contract. We have been patient, knowing the complexity of negotiations, and we have continued to provide a professional, high-quality education to our students. However, frustration is growing among our members at the lack of progress at the bargaining table. The school board's unwillingness to seriously address the needs of the school district is disappointing.
