BOSTON, MA – The Boston Teachers Union (BTU) voted tonight to ratify a new three-year treaty for educators. Each of the BTU`s four bargaining units – teachers, paraprofits, substitutes and applied behavioural analysts – voted in favour of ratification. BTU and BPS have agreed to address the consequences of the city`s decision to reopen Boston Public Schools (District or BPS) for the 2020-2021 school year during the ongoing covid-19 pandemic on employment service conditions. The BTU approved an agreement providing for a full-time nurse in each school, staff for student mental health and increased support for the inclusion of BTU and BPS Special Schools agreed on expectations for distance education until the end of the school closure phase. The Office of Labor Relations negotiates and manages Boston Public School collective agreements with unions representing Boston Public School employees. Boston Public Schools has about 14 bargaining units employing more than 10,000 people. Contracts for some of the largest unions at Boston Public School as well as terms and conditions of employment are available below. Maryland Department of Education regulations require all City Schools staff to be assigned to bargaining units, unless they occupy positions classified as confidential or managerial. A position is confidential when its jurisdiction must stop, when it includes access to specific information on collective bargaining in municipal schools. A position is a leadership position when its main tasks involve decision-making at the system level. No negotiated contract applies to unrelated employees.
