FAIRBANKS — The Fairbanks North Star Borough school board has begun the formal process of opening negotiations with the Fairbanks Principals Association.
The school board at its Tuesday night meeting approved a motion inviting the public to comment on issues that will be addressed in the collective bargaining process before the start of negotiations. The motion also named Gayle Pierce, labor relations director for the school district, as chief negotiator for the school board.
Public comments on principals’ salaries, benefits and any other contractual issues will be taken at any regular school board meeting before negotiations begin.
The public is invited to send written comments to the School Board Office, 520 Fifth Ave., Fairbanks, AK 99701-4756
The current contract between the FPA and the district expires June 30, 2013.
