Put An End To Cherry Hill Education Contract Dispute
This petition made change with 285 supporters!
After 2 years of negotiating, it seemed the dispute between the Board of Education and the Cherry Hill Education Association (CHEA) was finally over.
To break the impasse, both sides agreed to a state-appointed fact finder to impartially review material from both the Board and CHEA and make a settlement recommendation. While not ideal for either side, the fact finder's report was within acceptable limits and the teachers agreed to its terms.
The Board of Education refused.
Instead, the Board is holding this settlement, and therefore, our entire community hostage so they can be released from a flagrant violation, or what they have called a “procedural item.” This "procedural item" is not even related to the contract dispute and should be addressed independently. This impasse has been going on for more than 500 days, and for the Board to intentionally sabotage a settlement offer in order to muscle the teachers into acquitting them of their offense is indefensible.
We are pleading with the Board to stop playing politics with our children’s future and accept the fact finder’s report without any preconditions.The teachers have.
Just as teachers act in the best interests of their students, it’s time for the Board of Education to act in the best interest of our teachers and support staff.
Please sign this petition urging the Board to – once and for all – end the contract dispute.
