  • Important Message from the Board of Education

    May 1, 2018

    On Monday, October 30, 2017, the Mendham Borough Board of Education (“Board”) received the Fact-Finding Report from the independent, State-appointed Fact-Finder regarding the on-going Teacher negotiations.  In November 2017, the Board voted to accept the Fact-Finder’s recommendations in its entirety.  To date, the Mendham Borough Education Association (“Teachers’ Association”) has not voted to accept the Fact-Finder’s report or presented any possible settlement alternative.

    The Board and the Teachers’ Association met with the State-appointed Super-Conciliator on January 30, 2018 and again on April 26, 2018.  Once again, the Teachers’ Association did not present any offer to resolve the on-going negotiations at either of these two meetings.  As a result, the Super-Conciliator has ordered both sides to submit written briefs by May 14, 2018 and he will issue a written settlement recommendation to both the Teachers’ Association and the Board on June 7, 2018 at 4:30 p.m.

    Instead of resolving the outstanding contract, the leadership of the Teachers’ Association has instructed its members to engage in a job action.  Specifically, the Teachers’ Association’s leadership has instructed its members to no longer provide extra help to students either before or after school.  The Board is gravely disappointed in this job action which directly and adversely impacts our students and, therefore, calls upon the Teachers’ Association to immediately cease and desist with this job action. The Board has filed an Unfair Practice Charge concerning this job action, which is presently pending before the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission.  We will keep the public apprised of any further developments regarding this unfortunate matter.
