The Amherst Pelham Education Association (“the Association”) and the Amherst Pelham Regional School Committee, the Amherst School Committee and the Pelham School Committee (“the Committees), having met to discuss cost saving measures in an attempt to minimize layoffs and other disruptions resulting from the cutbacks required to balance the Committees Fiscal Year 2011 budgets, hereby record their agreements as follows:

  • The Association and the Committees agree that teachers employed by the Committees will be furloughed for a total of three (3) days for the 2010-2011 school year. Teachers will not work and will not be paid for three (3) curriculum days. Payroll deductions will be implemented by agreement of the parties.

  • Savings generated by said furloughs will be used exclusively to preserve staffing in each of the school districts.

  • The current collective bargaining agreement between the parties, dated September 1, 2008 through August 31, 2011, is not modified in any respect by this memorandum. Further, the parties acknowledge that there has been no agreement to extend the current collective bargaining agreement.

  • This agreement is contingent upon the passage of a proposed override by the voters of the Town of Amherst, in the amount of $1.68 million dollars, said vote to be held on March 23, 2010. Should the override fail, this agreement shall be null and void, and of no effect between the parties.
