The Board of Education voted Wednesday night to ratify its agreement with the Albuquerque Teachers Federation, resulting in pay rises and other clerical changes. The agreement indicates that high-risk employees will be able to work remotely. The council voted 6 to 1 in favour of ratifying the union agreement with Peggy Muller-Aragon. The ratified ATF and SPG agreements also provide counsellors, social workers, nurses, interpreters, specialist educators and audiologists at the same minimum wage levels as teachers. The GSP and THE ATF will continue to work together to determine the most effective way to use staff during this period. All paid employees should be available to participate in the ongoing improvement of the educational process to best meet the needs of our students during this very difficult time. The GSP and THE ATF agree and understand that schools and educators will face challenges and barriers. We believe that the negotiated agreement will help all of you stay safe and keep schools running. The Armijo Board of Education (IC) includes the rector, a representative of the Federation elected by the members of the school association, teachers elected by teachers and representatives of parents of students of the school-approved college and may include representatives of other bargaining units, in accordance with their respective negotiated agreements, as well as all other staff members and/or students deemed appropriate by the ICR.
