7 7 P a g e P.O. Box 909 Trenton, NJ Phone: Fax: Web: BACKGROUNDER: Collective Bargaining in New Jersey s Public Schools The following FAQ, prepared by the New Jersey School Boards Association, describes the collective bargaining process in New Jersey s public schools. What is collective bargaining? Collective bargaining is a joint decision-making process by which the employer (the school board) and the employees representative (the union) reach agreement on issues affecting terms and conditions of employment. The terms and conditions include salaries; time off; insurance; benefits; workload; length of workday; length of work year; certain facilities issues, such as use of the teachers lounge; and procedural protections (for example, how job vacancies are posted). State law says these topics are mandatorily negotiable. Therefore, they can only be determined through bargaining. Which employees are covered by a contract? The groups of employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement vary from district to district. Each contract lists all the positions covered by the contract, and refers to the union as the bargaining unit. The bargaining unit may consist of teachers only, but it might also include secretaries, aides, custodians and bus drivers, if these groups have elected the same union to represent them in bargaining. What issues are not negotiated? Any topic not defined as mandatorily negotiable is not subject to collective bargaining. Examples include the hiring of employees and determining the qualifications for a position; the size of the work force; teaching assignments; and class size. These are matters of public policy, and school boards determine them at public meetings, where the community can observe the decision-making process. In contrast, collective bargaining is an exception to the rules of the Open Public Meetings Act and, therefore, can take place in closed session. Other topics not open to negotiations involve any issue that does not affect the work and welfare of employees, or which may be in breach of state laws or regulations. The contract does not guarantee individual employees of a job. (Staff size is decided by the school board.) Rather, the contract ensures the level of benefits and protection for the staff members who work in the district and are covered by the agreement. Is the school board required to negotiate with its unionized employees? Yes. New Jersey s Employer-Employee Relations Act (also known as the PERC law, for the Public Employment Relations Commission), was enacted in It not only requires school boards to negotiate with the labor unions, but they must negotiate in good faith. Bargaining in good faith is a legal requirement in which both parties consider all mandatorily negotiable topics raised through the bargaining process. How does the bargaining process work? Typical teacher contracts last for three years. When a contract s end is near, the school board and union will return to the bargaining table, each represented by a negotiating committee. Both committees have a chief spokesperson, who can be a member of the school board or the union. In many cases, the board or the union will be represented by a professional negotiator, who serves as chief spokesperson. Each side prepares proposals, which contain its positions and demands on mandatorily negotiable issues. In an attempt to negotiate an acceptable compromise, the other side will offer counter positions. During the process, many proposals are modified; some are withdrawn. Each move is an attempt to shape an agreement that both sides can live with. Neither party is required to concede on any issue, although each must bargain in good faith in an attempt to reach a mutually satisfactory

8 8 P a g e settlement. What resources does the school board have available? School boards rely upon their superintendents, business administrators and attorneys for help, but many also hire professional negotiators during the bargaining process. As a service organization, NJSBA also assists school boards by providing extensive data on contracts throughout the state, settlement rates and benefits. NJSBA keeps school officials aware of the latest news and labor rulings and it helps individual districts with in-district consultations. In addition, NJSBA hosts a number of training programs throughout the course of the year, such as Preparing for Bargaining, Intermediate Bargaining, and Analyzing Salary Guides. What happens when the two sides reach an agreement? The committee representing the school board presents the tentative agreement to the full school board for a vote, and the committee representing the union presents the same agreement to its members for ratification. Be aware that when one hears of a contract giving raises of a certain percentage, rarely does it mean that all teachers will get the same percentage. Rather, that figure represents the total dollar increase, because the way in which raises are distributed will vary according to the salary guide. For instance, a school board seeking to attract and retain new teachers might negotiate more substantial raises at the junior levels of the salary guide, while the staff on the higher echelons of the guide might receive raises less than the average percentage increase. This ratified contract becomes legally binding on both parties for its duration and may not be modified unilaterally by either side. Any contract changes must be negotiated since they would affect terms and conditions of employment. Therefore, the only way that the terms can change is if the parties voluntarily agree to reopen negotiations. Are there other issues to look for in a contract other than the average salary increase? Absolutely. One can t properly evaluate contracts by looking only at the average salary increase; that s just one element of the agreement. Unions will often agree to concessions, or give backs, that can yield substantial savings to taxpayers. This has become an increasingly common approach to controlling health insurance costs, which have skyrocketed in recent years. For instance, boards and local unions may agree to higher deductibles or prescription co-pays; a less-costly health insurance program for new employees; or offering incentives to waive the district s health insurance if the employee is covered by another health insurance plan, such as their spouse s. What happens if the two sides cannot reach a settlement? When the parties declare an impasse, the Public Employment Relations Commission is contacted and a mediator is sent. The mediator is a third-party neutral whose purpose is to ensure both sides reach an agreement but the mediator s role is not to safeguard the interests of either the board or teachers. Mediation typically involves both sides being separated while the mediator works between the two to broker a deal. If mediation fails, the process goes to fact-finding, in which a new state-appointed mediator hears arguments from both sides and presents a report. The fact-finder s report is a public document 10 days after both parties receive it. Sometimes, the release of the document can generate public pressure to make concessions that result in a settlement. However, neither side is obligated to accept the fact-finder s report. If fact-finding does not result in a settlement, the process moves to super conciliation. This is more intensive mediation, and state law authorizes the super conciliator to utilize means and mechanisms, including but not limited to requiring 24-hour per day negotiations, until a voluntary settlement is reached. Can t the school board and the union simply go to arbitration? No. New Jersey law does not provide for binding arbitration for teacher contracts. Nor would New Jersey taxpayers want arbitration. Arbitrators do not live in the district, they do not pay for the consequences of their decisions, and they are not accountable to the taxpayers of the community. Why does it take so much time and effort to reach an agreement? Each side brings the interests of its constituency to the bargaining table. School boards with limited resources seek to allocate funds in a way that best serve students, taxpayers and employees. Meanwhile, the unions rightful purpose is to gain as much as they can for their members in terms of salaries and benefits. These are issues that will impact taxpayers, staff and students typically for three years. It s easy to see why

9 9 P a g e negotiations can be a process that demands serious consideration and time. What happens if the contract expires before a new one is reached? School employees never work without a contract. Until a new agreement is reached, all of the provisions of the expired agreement remain in effect. Employees continue to receive salaries, health insurance, sick leave, and all other benefits provided in the expired agreement. That is why it is inaccurate to say that teachers are working without a contract. ******** The New Jersey School Boards Association, a federation of district boards of education, advocates the interests of school districts, trains local school board members, and provides resources for the advancement of public education. ###

14 14 P a g e POLICY ASBURY PARK BOARD OF EDUCATION Teaching Staff Members 3212/Page 1 ATTENDANCE (M) 3212 ATTENDANCE (M) M The regular and prompt attendance of teaching staff members is an essential element in the efficient operation of the school district and the effective conduct of the educational program. Because absenteeism exacts a high cost in the depletion of district resources and in the disruption of the educational program, the Board of Education is vitally interested in the attendance of each employee and considers conscientious attendance an important criterion of satisfactory job performance. The privilege of district employment imposes on each teaching staff member the responsibility to be on the job on time every scheduled working day. This responsibility requires that the employee maintain good health standards, take intelligent precautions against accidents, both on and off the job, and manage his/her personal affairs to avoid conflict with district responsibilities. A teaching staff member who fails to give prompt notice of an absence, misuses sick leave, fails to verify an absence in accordance with Board policy, falsifies the reason for an absence, is absent without authorization, is repeatedly tardy, or accumulates an excessive number of absences without good cause may be subject to discipline, which may include the withholding of one or subsequent salary increments and/or certification of tenure charges. No teaching staff member will be discouraged from the prudent, necessary use of sick leave and any other leave provided for in the contract negotiated with the member s majority representative or provided in the policies of the Board. The Superintendent is directed to ascertain the rate of absence among the professional staff, in accordance with rules of the State Board of Education. Whenever the rate of absence in any school year is higher than three and one-half percent, the Superintendent shall develop and present to the Board a plan for the review and improvement of staff attendance. The review and improvement plan shall require the collection and analysis of attendance data, the training of teaching staff members in their attendance responsibilities, and the counseling of teaching staff members for whom regular and prompt attendance is a problem.

22 22 P a g e POLICY ASBURY PARK BOARD OF EDUCATION Teaching Staff Members 3216/Page 1 of 4 DRESS AND GROOMING 3216 DRESS AND GROOMING The Board is cognizant of the rights of pupils and teachers to express their individuality through their attire. The Board also recognizes the value of tasteful and appropriate dress which is conducive to a dignified environment of learning and the fostering of respect and discipline in the classroom situation. The Board observes that teachers serve as role models for the children of our schools, and help to shape pupil's attitudes and values concerning neatness, pride and cleanliness. Balancing these factors, the Board has adopted a dress code for pupils and faculty that is only minimally restrictive, but sets reasonable standards for grooming and appearance during school hours and at school functions. The dress codes for employees and pupils are to be enforced fairly and even-handed at all times, and shall be reviewed annually, for reasonableness under the standard of generally accepted dress in business and social context consistent with changing community attitudes. The dress code was adopted pursuant to the general rule making authority of the Board found in N.J.S.A. 18A:11.1 and N.J.S.A. l8a:27-4. Responsibility for acceptable dress will rest primarily with the employee as a professional. The faculty of the Asbury Park School District shall be neatly attired and groomed while discharging their responsibilities to the district. 1. Grooming and attire shall meet the following criteria during school hours: a. Females should wear skirts, slacks, blouses or sweaters, dresses or slack suits. b. Males should wear suits with shirt and tie, sports jacket with shirt and tie, turtle-neck sweater and jacket, shirt and sweater, or knit shirt with collars but shall exclude tennis shirts, sweatshirts, pullover shirts, shorts and other similar attire. c. All staff members shall maintain clean and well-groomed hair styles. d. The Board recognizes that temperatures may vary from room to room and facility to facility. Accordingly, the Board shall rely primarily on the professional judgment of individual staff members
