Here we go, hot off the presses. The president of Colorado Springs Education Association has announced that it will not agree to opening up Monday's bargaining meeting, in response to the School District 11 board's vote to see if they might just reconsider that whole previous agreement business.
... according the current terms of the collective bargaining agreement, Monday’s bargaining meeting will be closed to the public. We trust that the District will respect this position at Monday’s session and will take all appropriate steps to ensure that our prior mutual agreement will be honored. Included in this would be the security of all involved and assurances that the District intends to enforce the closed and private nature of the bargaining session scheduled for Monday, February 28th and all subsequent meetings until such time as a different understanding has been reached.
