NORWICH – After more than two years of negotiations, BOCES teachers, therapists and other professionals have finally reached agreement on a contract.
Labor Relations specialist Mike Lynch, who represents the New York State United Teachers union, said a tentative agreement was reached between union officials and the BOCES administration on Jan. 16.
No details of the contract will be released until the agreement is ratified at the BOCES Board of Education meeting Jan. 31.
“We are very excited to bring this package to our members. It’s been a long struggle,” Lynch said.
