Thanks to EVERY GBEA member. Clearly because of the added pressure of your actions this morning the GBEA and GBSD were able to come to a tentative agreement on all remaining articles after 24+ hours of straight mediation.
Special Thanks to all the parents, students, community members, supportive organizations and all the OEA members who showed up to the rally last night to support the GBEA bargaining team. Clearly your support helped apply the pressure needed for a fair settlement, we could not have done it without you!
