Mount Greylock Still Negotiating with Union on Return to Classes
The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Thursday agreed on a plan for the sports program at the middle/high school but failed to agree on an agreement with the district's teachers about a plan to resume school in September.
After meeting in executive session for more than 2 1/2 hours, the seven-member panel returned to open session to inform the audience viewing its virtual meeting that it would not, as planned, be taking a vote on a memorandum of agreement with the Mount Greylock Educators Association.
"We feel like we've resolved most of the issues, but out of respect for the process, we won't be voting tonight."
Moments after Art's announcement, Steven Miller, who already had voted in the minority of a 6-1 vote to go into executive session, also was the lone member of the committee voting against a motion to adjourn. In the past, Miller has advocated for public negotiations between the School Committee and MGEA, a notion that union leaders roundly rejected.
