Contract Ratified

TAAAC Representatives Ratify Contract at September Association Representative Council TAAAC Reps gathered at Severna Park Middle School on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 for the first Association Representative Council. 122 Reps were in attendance during the meeting for a 73% representation. 84 units (school buildings) were present for an 62% representation.

The straw ballot put out to all Unit 1 employees with the help of AACPS email system brought in 730 YES votes and 191 NO votes.

TAAAC Executive Director presented the proposed agreement and fielded questions from Reps. The vote was conducted by secret ballot. The final vote count was 110 YES and 11 NO. The contract was declared ratified with 90% of Reps present in favor.

The next step involves the Board of Education casting their vote on the contract. In all likelihood it will take place at their September 21, 2016 meeting at 7:00PM at the BOE on Riva Rd. All indications are that the Board of Education will ratify. Keep looking for updates when the Board’s vote occurs.
