A federal mediator is here to work with all sides on what district spokeswoman Pegge Erkeneff described as the typical sticking points. Erkeneff: “The big issues for discussions always are compensations, employee benefits, healthcare and then the work environment that one or both sides want to address for possible revisions. By state mandate, by state law, we open up a period of public comment and it’s an opportunity for the public to share their thoughts on the issues that get addressed in collective bargaining, those are all going to be collected, we’re going to keep that comment period open throughout the entire negotiation period and then those comments are going to be given to the School Board.”  Click here to submit a public comment on the district’s negotiation process. center_img Once all sides agree on terms, the Board of Education must approve those.

She rode a great round today to hold onto seventh place. Her horse was still full of running today, he was feisty and didn’t make her job easy but Sarah is a true professional. The whole team pulled together today and we were all rooting for her. Trish Ryan also had a great result to finish 22nd individually quite a while since her last championships.“We don’t have a lot of strength in depth and a fifth place finish overall for the team is good and gives us something to build on. I want to thank all our horses owners without whom we wouldn’t be here and to all our management team and to the grooms. A special mention also to all our sponsors, Equiline, TRM, Charles Owen, Berney Bros, Horseware and to Dubarry who made us all look very smart for the trot-up. We have learned a lot from these championships and we have already started to look ahead to next year.” Home  »  General  »  Seventh place finish for Meath’s Sarah Ennis at Eventing European Championships as Ireland take fifth in team final Seventh place finish for Meath’s Sarah Ennis at Eventing European Championships as Ireland take fifth in team final 20 August 2017, 17:52last_img read more
