The Ongoing Rhetoric!

Comments by Bob McQuillan made at the September 24, 2012 School Board Meeting

I’m tired of the rhetoric, and I’m sure you are as well. For the last 8 weeks, several school district employees have spoken of how they are disrespected and not treated fairly. Many more have sat in the audience and applauded. Here are things that have been said.

• “The board needs to sit outside of yourself and look at the whole picture”
•"People in Geneva used to have civic pride”
• “There will be dire effects if teachers are forced to take a hard freeze”
• “The trust between the board, administration and teachers has been eroded”
• “Everyone used to be united for one purpose”
• “Must haves should not be brought to the table”
• “There is rancor from the outside”
• And my personal favorite… “Very negative groups have been destructive and divisive and there is no place in the community for them”

With today's release of the fiscal 2012 school year teacher’s salary (see attachment below), it is clear that the contract issue is all about finances and economics. Here are the real facts that need to be considered.

MORE on Next Teachers Contract & The New State Laws

It is extremely important that our Geneva School Board is represented by an attorney that understands the collective bargaining part of the new school law (formerly SB 7) very well. Under the new law, after good faith negotiations, either side can declare the sides are at impasse. Posting the last offer on the web is required by the new law.

Once impasse is declared, each side has 1 or 2 weeks to send their last offer to the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board (IELRB) and the Illinois School Board of Education (ISBE). The IELRB posts both sides' last offers on its website www2.illinois.gov/elrb/Pages/FinalOffers.aspx.

At this point, a few things can happen. The teachers can strike, or sue the district for unfair labor practices. Or the sides can continue to talk, but generally without formal proposals.

Prior to the new law, if the school year starts and the last contract has expired, teachers would work under the terms of the expired contract. Under the new law, the Board can "implement" or "impose" its last offer, the one it sent to the IELRB.
