I just received the following note from Dale Folkerts, the WEA Communications person in charge of our www.kentschools.org website. Many have asked why the KEA proposal from Thursday, Sept. 10th has been removed from that website. KSD still has both proposals up, but it sounds like they are outdated at this point. Here’s his response:
Yes, the bargaining team asked me to take it down. The underlining and strike-throughs that are essential to understanding which parts of the proposal are new and which are being deleted did not transfer well from their Word docs to the online PDF. So the result was something that was incomprehensible if not plain inaccurate. I asked for a newer, cleaner version, but have not received it. They’ve been busy reading and responding to proposals today, and that is their top priority. I am not going to bother them for this, and our members should also give them time to do the work that is essential to reaching a settlement, rather than bombarding them with e-mail queries.
