Federation of Teachers have reached a tentative agreement

by Press Release
January 26, 2018

The Holliston School Committee and the Holliston Federation of Teachers announced today that their negotiating teams have reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement.  In forming this agreement, both parties recognize that there is a shared responsibility to the teachers of Holliston, as well as to the community.

Holliston School Committee Chairperson, Anne Louise Hanstad expressed her appreciation for the professionalism of Holliston’s teachers. “While I’m sure that both parties wish that the negotiation process hadn’t been so protracted, I am so impressed that our teachers never let any of that frustration spill into the classroom while we worked together on a fair contract settlement.”

 “Holliston’s teachers remain united in their efforts to work collaboratively in order to meet the academic and social-emotional needs of all students in Holliston through innovative and exceptional teaching; the process of collective bargaining provides teachers with a vehicle so this important work can take place,” stated Jaime Cutone, President of the Holliston Federation of Teachers (HFT).

The Committee and the Teachers share a common goal of supporting the growing needs of our student population and look forward to future collaborative discussions on how best to continue providing an optimal learning environment for our students and teachers.

The terms of the agreement are still tentative and subject to approval by the HFT membership and the Holliston School Committee.  The HFT will hold a ratification meeting on Monday, January 29 and the School Committee is scheduled to vote as well on Thursday, February 1 in executive session.  The revised terms will be shared with the community after the agreement is ratified by both the HFT and the Holliston School Committee.
