Arbiter releases opinion on KPBSD teacher and staff union negotiations

In this Oct. 15, 2012 Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Board of Education meeting teachers and staff filled to standing-room-only while protesting the lack of a contract between the district and its teacher and staff unions.

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District posted the results of a nonbinding arbitrator's advisory opinion on the negotiations between the district and two unions. 
The Kenai Peninsula Education Association and Kenai Peninsula Support Association, unions representing the teachers and staff in the district, have been bargaining with the district since January 2012 and entered in Advisory Interest Arbitration in October 2012 according to the media release. 
The previous agreement between the district and the two unions expired on June 30 and the district started the school year with temporary contracts. 
No statement on the results was given at the time the district sent out the media release and it is "in the process of reviewing it."
The district's Board of Education is scheduled to review the arbitrator's decision in an executive session during its next school board meeting on Jan. 14. 
Bargaining talks between the district and the unions will begin again on Jan. 22 at 1 p.m. according to the release.
