Board, 4 unions to talk ANNE ARUNDEL EDUCATION

November 30, 1992

The Anne Arundel County Board of Education is to mee tonight to discuss contract negotiations with its unions.

The talks, set to begin at 8 p.m. in the administration building on Riva Road in Annapolis, take place in closed session.

Contracts for all four unions are open this year. The unions are the Teachers Association of Anne Arundel County (TAAAC); the Association of Educational Leaders, which represents principals and administrators; the Secretaries and Assistants Association of Anne Arundel County; and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, representing blue-collar workers.

Last year, negotiations with the unions were not resolved until April. For the second year in a row, none of the four unions received a cost-of-living adjustment.

A new round of state budget cuts may make it difficult for unions to receive pay increases. But TAAAC President Thomas J. Paolino said he doubted teachers would agree to forgo a pay increase for a third year.
